Las inoportunas conclusiones a que lo arrastraba la intelección de<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>concierto en ese abigarrado tumulto de destinos, lo abrumaron. El todo indiferenciado tejiendo las formas.

La gracia de una mujer que lo adelantaba fijó su atención en el ondular de esas caderas, alejándolo de sus cavilaciones.

Ni siquiera se percató que el tren estaba en movimiento y atravesaba ese sur abandonado a su decadencia por la incuria de funcionarios ocupados en embellecer otros ámbitos a los que pertenecían. Desde el elevado era posible abarcar el panorama de techos oxidados y galpones sombríos, donde se atareaba una multitud de hombres y mujeres empujados por el despótico reclamo de un presente perpetuo. Pero él navegaba otra dimensión, sumergido en el sensualismo de <SPAN style="COLOR: black">los Rubaiyat de Omar Khayyam. Uno, entre todos, lo perseguía con insistencia desde la niñez.

Entre las hojas amarillas de los paraísos vislumbró los baldíos donde chiquillos jubilosos corrían detrás de una pelota de trapo. Constató la ausencia de esos recuerdos. Pero el ineludible quehacer de componer un destino particular clausura la opción de infinitas vidas posibles. ¡Qué desperdicio! Se evocó como un niño solitario, pulcro y obediente, traduciendo cuentos de Oscar Wilde a los diez años; leyendo ensimismado la Enciclopedia Británica, cuyo colonialista redactor volcó al inglés, tal vez sin comprender, la poesía persa del siglo XIV. Sarcástico, se dijo que tanto orientalismo extemporáneo y de segunda mano era, por lo menos, pretencioso.</SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0pt 2.2pt 0pt 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 34pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: ES-AR; mso-fareast-language: ES-AR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><SPAN style="COLOR: black"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: ES-AR; mso-fareast-language: ES-AR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; COLOR: black; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>&nbsp;</P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0pt 2.2pt 0pt 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 34pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: ES-AR; mso-fareast-language: ES-AR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><SPAN style="COLOR: black"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: ES-AR; mso-fareast-language: ES-AR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; COLOR: black; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><SPAN lang=ES-AR style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: ES-AR; mso-fareast-language: ES-AR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA">No obstante, reconoció que la creación destilaba su obra de burdos e incompletos materiales; como Rodin, que ve la figura de El Pensador en un bloque de piedra o el carpintero la silla que fabrica en la tosca madera.

Había equivocado de tren y se dirigía, recto como una flecha, hacia el corazón del horizonte. ¡Carajo! Se dijo, contrariado. Al instante desaprobó el exabrupto y comparó con malévola ironía su censura y el taimado, entrometido sistema de los curas, prontos a castigar a los que pecan con el pensamiento.
