and to these, I drink tonight

A “selfie” from the Barcode Area in Bjørvika Oslo. The Barcode has been criticized for being decadent.

“there’s nothing to
discuss
there’s nothing to
remember
there’s nothing to
forget
it’s sad
and 
it’s not
sad

seems the
most sensible
thing
a person can 
do
is
sit
with drink in
hand
as the walls
wave
their goodbye
smiles

one comes through
it 
all
with a certain 
amount of
efficiency and
bravery
then
leaves

some accept
the possibility of
God
to help them
get
through

others
take it
staight on

and to these

I drink 
tonight.”

Edit: LIke you see in the link above, the theme for WordPress’ weekly photo challenge this week is “Yellow”. Over at WordPress, they write: «With this week’s challenge, show us what yellow means to you.»
So, what has this post got to do with yellow? Yellow doesn’t really mean anything to me, it’s just a color like all the others and I think that those kind of challenges are lame. “Show us blue, show us green, show us red, show us this or that color… So, I decided to post a photo where I removed all the colors – including yellow.
If you’re going to have show us this or that at color “challenges”, at least pick some colors that make people go: “What?!? Which color is that???” For example: brilliant azure, AuroMetalSaurus or caput mortuum.
