The most poignant object in the world ever

I found this on the sidewalk in Alphabet City last fall. Check it out:

Let's zoom in on that a bit:

The word is gouged into the wood with a soft pencil.

The back:

Someone handcarved this wooden frame to fit a shard of broken mirror. Who?


Amazon tells me I just sold two books I found on the street:

"Good News About Sex and Marriage: Answers to Your Honest Questions About Catholic Teaching" and "Miss Manners' Guide for the Turn-of-the-Milennium."

Yay $12!
