Sample text

Vado verso la Mini. In piedi di fianco alla macchina c'è una donna, di schiena. Sta fumando una sigaretta e ha un'aria familiare. Mi fermo a guardarla pensando che è troppo tardi anche per una battona povera e ostinata. In quel momento si gira e la riconosco. È Carla. La sorpresa riesce a superare la stanchezza che mi sta attorcigliando le spalle, le gambe e lo stomaco. Mi avvicino. Lei mi vede, getta il mozzicone a terra e regala l'ultimo sbuffo di fumo alla notte. Viene verso di me. Il suo viso è bello come me lo ricordavo.

O forse ero troppo occupato a farmi bello agli occhi di Daytona, per accorgermene. Passo dopo passo emergono dalla penombra i suoi occhi. Li tiene fissi nei miei, anche se quando mi parla c'è una nota d'imbarazzo nella sua voce. E una forma di prudenza e di pudore tutti femminili, per essere davanti a me, in quel posto e a quell'ora. » «Ciao. » Fa un cenno con la testa verso il palazzone dove, dietro alle finestre illuminate, si stanno affannando con panni e strofinacci le sue colleghe. «Ero al lavoro.

Non sfuma nessun affare. » «Perché dovrei farlo? » «Te lo dico io perché. Ti eviti di crepare in un modo piuttosto penoso. Io non ho fretta. Posso spararti un colpo in un ginocchio e aspettare. Poi nell'altro e poi nella spalla e cosi via. Oppure con un colpo solo farti saltare via tutta l'attrezzatura. » Resto in silenzio. Il mio pensiero va da un'altra parte. Ora non sono più nella macchina ma altrove, con altri uomini come il Tulipano, persone con le stesse intenzioni e con la stessa indifferenza.
