A Short Life

Janus Metz, Denmark, 2014

14 min.DK/Short fiction

A drunk Greenlandic man tries to commit suicide but fails. His arms are too short and he only succeeds in the complete destruction of his jaw. Surgeons and nurses start the slow and tiresome work of creating a new jaw, wondering if it is worth the effort. Finally the new titanium jaw is in place and it makes him look less drunk and less Greenlander. More like a South American version of Kirk Douglas. With new courage, he is ready to be discharged.
