Overview Du sier, jeg sier

I say the air is bad.
I say that I want to air.
Just for a few minutes.
Cross draft in both rooms.

You say You want coke.
I say that the Pepsi has been left for at least two days.
I say that I can not remember opening it.
Maybe a week?

You say that we can try.
We unscrew the cork and listen to it fizz.
You can never know.
I say that I want some too.

In this book we meet a young couple. They share their everyday life, talk to each other, meet each others language. With each their own voice they build what will be their common story.

Reviews Du sier, jeg sier

"Kaia Dahle Nyhus’ diktbok syner på ein genuin måte korleis fellesskap, og kanskje også konfliktar, vert bygde i språket, ganske enkelt ved at eitt ord tek eit anna. Eit par er berre to, men samstundes speglar dei ei heil verd. Det vert fint."

Sindre Ekrheim, Dag og Tid
