Your command of English is excellent, Tommy! I've never met a Norwegian who didn't know English, but I've met only one American who knew Norwegian, the late [= polite way of saying "dead"] Professor Einar Haugen. We would say "bloodshot" and not "bloodshelled," but, otherwise, perfect. I've never seen our pain expressed so well in poetry.
By the way, you wouldn't know Torald Toraldsen, would you? He was my office mate when he was a student here in the States.
