Blue vinyl...

...that never was meant to see the natural, outdoor light of a 10 a.m. morning. This abandoned couch, which I am posting in honor of the glorious Abandoned Couches site of Los Angeles, sat peacefully, though discarded, Tuesday morning on Vestal and Altivo in Echo Park. Sure it was a fish out of blue water -- it lacked a group of swells with martinis and floral print poly-whatever button-down shirts. The breed is now extinct in Echo Park, according to forensic anthropologists. I suppose the lounge aesthetic doesn't work in the new bad economy. The grasses in the background look like they want to drink it.
