A Poem by Alex Brindle Johnson

This beautiful morning.
The sun,
the blue,the clean,the crisp.
It mocks me.
My stomach has a fist this beautiful morning.
A sickness in my throat.
All that is beautiful hurts.
Beauty means your spod kid glasses.
Beauty means your small person voice.
Beauty means your arms,
your eyes,
your desperation,
your fear.
Beauty means your insecurity.
Who said a relationship founded on paternal instinct shouldn't flourish.
You have me.
My flesh is yours.
Your tantrums own my vital organs
and i grow weaker every day remembering you.

My 75 Mercedes 450 SL

Custom back seats - technically this space is for the speakers but it used to belong to a Mercedes mechanic - really awesome French/Moroccan guy, big up Meyers Auto Repair on La Brea - and he altered it and reupholstered the whole thing.

I'm in love! Thinking back a few months I was on the dole in London living on frozen peas. I really have to give it to California, you bring out the best in people.

For anyone who doesn't know this site, it's rad, it's free talks by amazing people. I love going to talks but this is the next best thing.

Cosmic Wonder. It's been a while.

Are you blind?

One of the more interesting models of the last few years. Not many models have 16 tattoos. Or are openly gay. She made her debut in 05 - that's a long run. She is grossly scrawny, alas. The fact she dated Catherine McNeil is pretty rad. Catherine has done some beautiful editorial (although someone needs to tell her Ruby Rose is a step down). Freja gives Danes a good name.

New apt

In an old building, detached, in Echo Park, super high ceilings. Lots of space for someone with no shit.
