The

Presque lui

 

His phalanxes no longer articulate Chopin on the piano. His calves struggle on the bike. He has lost twenty kilos of circumstances. He has just sold his apartment, he gave his books, burned his last flannel clothes. He doesn’t scream when stolen, he smiles when betrayed, he no longer moans when Laura cancels. Here he is in weightlessness, lighter than a perfume whose name has been forgotten. He climbs the steps one by one from the big diving board waiting for him. Here is the time of the jump, the big dive. The vertical will tell if the splashes sound right. He is almost him.

Ses phalanges n’articulent plus Chopin sur le piano. Ses mollets peinent sur le vélo. Il a perdu vingt kilos de circonstances. Il vient de vendre son appartement, il a donné ses livres, brûlé ses derniers vêtements de flanelle. Il ne crie plus quand on le vole, sourit quand on le trahit, ne râle plus quand Laura se décommande. Le voilà en apesanteur, plus léger qu’un parfum dont on ne trouve pas le nom. Une à une, il monte les marches du grand plongeoir qui l’attend. Voici l’heure du saut, du grand plongeon. La verticale dira si les éclaboussures sonnent juste. Il est presque lui.
