Bergen, Norway

 

I’ve decided to try & write a long poem in 16 days, while traveling. It will help me set down my experiences of the trip, both imagistically as well as culturally, while providing my brain with some activity. I can’t imagine achieving more than 6 pages.

Bergen, Norway is a deliciously small harbor city filled with artsy curiosity shops & public art & food art all meant to be consumed within a day or two & then remembered for its charm. We spoke with several shopkeepers who find living there to be a different story altogether, but luckily, we are leaving at 6 AM for Oslo.
