"Johanna keeps silent for a while – she often does this in TV interviews She does take the time to think carefully about what she will answer But doesn’t bother to make the customary thinkative grimace These few seconds of void make everything else feel grossly shallow"

"Her words are like chiseling blades reorganizing mental matter And each of them comes with sharp hand and head movements She shapes meanings with wide-open hands and tense fingers Until they turn into objects that one could see and feel"

“She tries to imagine manufactured objects loving her
How their technological indifference would be stimulating
She tries to imagine herself attired in fishnet and rubber
Warmth underlaid with cold and soft with hard”

‘She loosely puts on her army boots and drags her feet to the door
She stands shivering a couple of minutes in the doorway
Staring at what seems to her an almost petrified forest
Until she notices the liveliness of morning birds’ singing’
