Falling asleep in the
Middle of a nervous breakdown
Dreams of a museum and
Dali pictures slipping off walls
Puddles of time and egg
Memory running down
The hallway crying

Oh the humility

I cough myself to another room
Everything is filled with smoke and laughter
Driven mad by Hals and Rembrandt
Butter yellow light
Is gouging out my Vermeer visions

I drink in colors as
I race from room to room
Come face to face with
My portrait…hanging…
Head twisted in an
Oil and tempera scream

And looking
So Norwegian
