Prosa del otoño en Gerona (II)

August 26, 2010


A stranger is thrown across the bed. Throughout loveless scenes (inert bodies, sadomasochistic objects, pills and the scowls of the unemployed) you arrive at a moment which you call autumn and you discover the stranger.

In the room, apart from the reflection which swallows everything, you observe rocks, yellow slabs, sand, fur pillows, abandoned pajamas. Then everything disappears.


La desconocida está tirada en la cama. A través de escenas sin amor (cuerpos planos, objetos sadomasoquistas, píldoras y muecas de desempleados) llegas al momento que denominas el otoño y descubres a la desconocida.

En el cuarto, además del reflejo que lo chupa todo, observas piedras, lajas amarillas, arena, almohadas con pelos, pijamas abandonados. Luego desaparece todo.
