Thanks a lot, aleksandar!

No contradiction, Diana!

A manifesto with bravado...

Love and friendship...

The relation between a woman and her brutal husband...

Yoanna!

The only reason... ()

Watching the "Divina Commedia", Edilberto... ()

A gothic tale...

Dali's bending of figures...

All that jazz... ()

A couple of thrilling ideas there, Ion!

Much too much of the same sound...

Check the rhyming!

The ever enchanting spirit...

Approved, but...

Wel, the way I see it, it's formally okay...

Splendid, Simona...

I wish that too... ()

Classical verses... ()

A ballad of war's insanity

It really pleases me, Dan Marius...

And....good Golly!

Since music is one of my favorite occupations...

Despite...

And here's one... ()

Dan saw it...

I perceive this poem...

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

When reading this... ()

I second Marius' opinion...

A good idea indeed, Marius...

Please, drop "the" at the beginning of your last line ...

So nice, Marius....

Viel dank, Marius!

A very good idea...

Ooops..we are such STUFF

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!

Enjoyable wordplay...

Please; no longer can she see me...

The succession of words in English is...

Exploring the various facets... ()

Wise words

You're so right

A small and very well-shaped silent movie... ()

In very short poems...

Anonymity, blankness, the mask...

I enjoyed this...

The wind, the rain, the growth

...Mike and Chris!

The ever unfolding drama...

Why did I start imagining...

There you go again...

A plant for sure, Marius, but also... ()

One often wonders...

Most amusing... ()

Your alterations do improve...

I second...

I can't help but... ()

Thanks a lot, Gradinaru...

Let's try again.

I'm not save?

Interesting elaboration...

Certainly a fine notion, but...

It takes a lot to cross certain bridges...

CONGRATULATIONS!

Well, then...

Simply loved this one...

That's right, Felix!

I try to observe...

Derrida, being one of the most influential...

A fair warning to those... ()

It's not that...

I like the last...

I appreciate the objectification...

Through The Looking-glass!

Intriguing really, but...

A well-composed...

Thank you very much...

Wrong section

Simple and striking... ()

In the words of a norwegian song title...

Expressive poem worth reading....

The letter format works for me as a reader...

And there...

Fine and intersting work. though I find some grammaticl flaws...

I know, and that....

I do think I may approve this one...

I do think I may approve this one...

Corina

Makes me...

Man, seemingly bound...

Intimate and well shaped...

Interesting approach, but...

No bad idea,but...

I've heard of...

I think maybe...

I hear and listen...

Short., open...

To be quite precise...

No verse enough?

An illustrious description...

An open door...

A politician(Mr. C?), a crimininal, both....

I second all of Marius' words here....

"Arts Masterpieces" ...

Now, that's more like poetry....

Here I find no good rhytm, no original images, no nice rhymes...

After (quite?) a bit of guidance...

I join in the praise...

Here vampirism may be perceived...

Lee Ann!

By all means...

Poetry as a tool...

You are obviously...

Congratulations, Bogdan! (of course, sorry!)...

And the question is...

That rite... ()

It would be suitable...

Oops, forgot to put you ...

"My past has never been better/than this....

Some very nice classical images there, Marius...

Funny...

Irene certainly has a point and..

Containing exquisite, concrete images..

This poem has potential...

Lost patterns...

Doing the "Severed Head".... ()

Floyd at the flat...

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 pŚ 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.
