You may easily get into that Xmas moos, Corina-

Not half bad, but-

Your statement about clarity-

I see- ()

Indeed-

Ravens are extensions of their own fear-

Thanks a lot, A-T! This is a kind of travesty effect-

Regarding incast

Robert Johnson was one of the foremost blues poets-

Yes, but I must insist, though-

A toast for Hertha Müller-

The description of october here-

Hatred, war and guntoting- ()

Relaxed? ()

Ã… profound conclusion- ()

Such is-

If there were stars for good comments, Gunsel-

As Adrian Henry put it:

Okay, but don't you think-

You may not be able to imagine that-

One of the great advantages-

Marius! ()

Interesting, really- ()

Rich images in this one- ()

You're only allowed-

An ominous, cryptic quality - ()

What a pioneer, what a trailblazer-

The absurdity and estrangement of war... ()

To be precise...

It must have been a mistake...

Grammar/Syntax

Simona!

Undoubtedly one of the great voices...

In this strikingly simple way... ()

Quite all right, just beware...

He who has ears, let him hear

And that pleases me...

V.V:

That finish really does it, Corina! ()

Problem, what problem, Ion?

Life is strong and strange, Simona...

Indeed!

I'll surely consider your suggestion, Veronica...

The fierce wind...

In this poem I've put on my fictional hat...

You leave this imprint on my mind here, Romulus:

Thanks indeed, Veronica!

I am pretty sure, Constantin...

But I can...

Poetry TV might be...

Everyone wants to succeed, Chris...

A distuingished end... ()

A fine tale of ambiguity...

Inside my head the themes...

There is no surrealism like...

That's to the point, Simona!

I erpecially loved...

This poem certainly...

A most pleasing simplicity... ()

As lutherans, roman catholics and anglicans...

Superior figments of the mind...

I totally agree, Simona...

That's an entertaining comment, Simona!

Thank you, Dan...

Thanks a lot, Gunsel...

Motionless...

Despite...

And here's one... ()

Dan saw it...

I perceive this poem...

I wouldn't need to fit in, Simona...

When reading this... ()

A creepy sense... ()

One line comes to mind:

I don't think "by chance" is the right expression here...

Thank you, Edilberto...

Last saturday, Marius...

This is really remarkable, because...

Marius, I was not inclining that you were unaware...

Sweet, but sadly conventional.

It's coherent, no big flaws...

A fine tribute to a great musician, Marius, however...

Mask, teeth, whatever, Monica...

Comprende, Feilx...

Edilberto, thanks a lot and you know...

A toast, Marius...

I really appreciate...

Thanks a lot, Corina!

Felix, in what way...

Just leave me with... ()

Time and space...

And so...

I see you rhyme as good... ()

Biography John Willy Kopperud

First years spent in various towns surrounding the Oslo fiord. Grew up in a suburb east of the city, both near to and withdrawn from my numerous peers. Significantly radicalized at the age of fourteen. Grew disappointed with the revolution and signed up for the magical mystery autumn 69. Radicalized once more. Dropped out once more. Fairly well educated during the 80's and 90's.
Poetry? Off and on, I'd say. Besides poems I have weitten both pop lyrics (plus lyrics for contemporary music)and short stories. What moves me? Imagination I guess. Imagination should not contradict everyday life (and the other way around.)
I must hold forth that good old Willie S. has quite a point when he gives fair warning regarding "The man who hath no music in himself."
Music? I have mentioned pop lyrics - to be more precise - most of these are connected to the singer/songwriter tradition. Concrete and melodious music. I have also been active in another musical area,
in the crossroad between music and noise. This is not academic sheet-music, it's rather built on improvisation and momentary exploration. Later on the product has been technically modified. Roar Borge My accomplice in the project "Fisk på Disc" available with the MP3 Album "School of fish'n'chips" through the net-distrubutor, TibProd. He has done the producing in his home studio on his own computer. The album is no. 53 in the companys catalogue and the address is : http://www.tibprod.com.
Ten tracks on the net for you to download. Be my guests!

My wife, Kristin, is responsible for some very nice poetic lyrics. For some of that material I have written
pop/singer-songwriter music.

Married to my life companion at the age of 33.One child. We live in a suburb some six kilometers from where I grew up.
Career: No big deal. Life: Good. Hardships: Yes
Happiness: Yes.
