From The New York Times:

IT’S certainly the case that sexual attraction generates heat. But what about the converse? Can heat — actual, nonmetaphorical, summer city heat — inspire lustful feelings?

It would seem so, according to these poems “found” last week in the Missed Connections section of newyork.craigslist.org. They are printed verbatim, with only line and stanza breaks added; their titles are the subject headings.

Make the jump to read the poems.
