A Familiar Place
Author: Simon Johansson
Publisher: Journal 2018
Year: 2018 - Pages: 140
Stockholm. It is impossible to evade your beauty, vulnerability and vanity. And your flaws. Your rottenness. I visit places where you bleed, I am there picking your scabs. Sometimes I grow tired of you and your easily broken promises. But I never give up on you. Your streets have always offered me direction. Walking here today, I stumble on old memories. - Simon Johansson
 
Across the Bridge
Author: Simon Johansson
Publisher: Journal 2016
Year: 2016 - Pages: 108
The sound of the Öland Bridge expansion joints against the tyres. The first years, when the bridge was new, islanders would come out in droves along the road to look at the invasion of the mainlanders. They don’t anymore. Apart from that most things have kept the same, time runs slower here. I see friendship, happiness, love, a breakup and a sorrow. There is so much ugliness here. So much beauty. - Simon Johansson
