The Golden Riot

st hanshaugen

Sometimes something gets stronger, shortly before it dies.

It rebels against the end, no one would have guessed.

Like the leaves. Look at the leaves.

Or like the sentiments of a year that is counting down the weeks. They creep over my back, while I stand looking over the Oslo Fjord, while I swish through the bright yellow dots in Slottsparken, while I squint at the sun.

I watch the last revolution of the trees; their end is marvelous.
