According to the previous owner: "It's hard to make out what he wrote, but the inscription might read 'I want to sleep on your couch someday,' though it could be something much dirtier. We were both too drunk for the writing to be legible or for me to remember exactly what it says. It was signed after a reading at The 303 Collective, in an unheated warehouse in Saginaw, Michigan."
