Have You Seen This Man?

The missing person poster bears a straight-on photo, the subject wearing overlarge glasses, his thinning hair flying every which way. He wears a green sweater over a button down white shirt.

Often, when someone goes missing, we suspect suicide - I do, anyway - but this guy, youngish, mild-looking, missing from Bushwick (which itself implies an entire demographic; perhaps he wears the sweater "ironically"), seems incapable of the passion required for self-violence.

I think this, and am immediately ashamed of myself.
