After a reading one audience member told me: “Your poems are good because the language isnæt quite right the way we would say it.”  

The struggle of using language, especially a foreign language, to communicate is the subject of this poem. Content is mirrored in the “not quite right” form of the language. 

It was chosen by the North Norwegian Writers Association for a postcard series in 2007.
