Facevo finta di non interessarmi a niente. Poi tutti e tre uscimmo a spasso e incominciammo a parlare come tre buoni amici che vogliono ingranare e dirsi tutto quel che hanno in mente, un’amichevole competizione. Così andammo al Red Drum a sentire il jazz, quella sera c’era Charlie Parker con Honduras Jones alla batteria e altri interessanti, forse anche Roger Beloit, che io volevo proprio vedere: e c’era nell’aria quell’eccitazione del bop di San Francisco dolce notturno ma sempre nella tipica compassata freddezza lieve e conciliante dell’ambiente della Riva Nord.

Come la volta della scazzottata con Jack Steen, m’è rimasta impressa in mente. ” “É successo prima, c’erano tutti i drogati nella stanza di Ross, a far baldoria e cagnara con Pusher, tu conosci Pusher, be’ anche in quell’occasione mi son levata i vestiti... faceva... tutto... parte della stessa... ” - E Jack Steen s’incazzò con lei e s’era creduto che pestarla e sbatterla 50 Jack Kerouac - I sotterranei fuori a pugni le sarebbe bastato per tornare in sé, così le si avventò contro, ma lei era forte quanto lui (questi anemici asceti d’America, pallidi, drogati da cinquanta chili), splan, se le diedero sode in cospetto di tutti gli altri stanchi.

Dunque: lei entrò, ore otto del mattino, Adam andò al lavoro e noi restammo soli e immediatamente lei mi si arricricciò in grembo, a gentile richiesta, nella grande poltrona imbottita, e cominciammo a parlare, cominciò a dirmi la sua storia e io spensi (nel giorno grigio) la fioca lampadina appannata e così cominciò il nostro vero amore. Doveva dirmi tutto - certo tutta la storia l’aveva già raccontata l’altro giorno ad Adam e lui era stato ad ascoltare pizzicandosi la barba con uno sguardo trasognato nell’occhio distratto tanto per far finta di essere attento e comprensivo in quella squallida eternità, e ogni tanto faceva di sì col capo; e adesso lei ricominciava con me tutto daccapo come se lo raccontasse (pensavo) a un fratello di Adam più grande più amorevole più grosso, a un ascoltatore e inquisitore più tenace.
