Gunnar Goes God

Fragments from a documentary by the Norwegian director Gunnar Hall Jensen

the desert washes reason with sand when god isn’t there,

children are faraway, wife is faraway, sleeping next to you,

you go by car until you are broken,

a monk licks a stone and knows what it tastes like,

you want to be a monk; you will be a stone

(Norway, 2010, directed by Gunnar Hall Jensen)
