Now that the fat diner was going on speaking animatedly to his wife, commenting on fragments of the Russian alphabet of France-Soir, it didn’t seem to Juan, no matter how much attention he paid, that his voice dominated that of his wife and the other diners. If he had heard (if he had thought he heard, if he had been given to hear, if he had had to hear) that the fat diner wanted a bloody castle, the hole in the air had to have made him open Michel Butor’s book. But he had bought the book before reaching the corner of the Rue de Vaugirard and only when he got to the corner had he felt the presence of the countess, remembered Frau Marta and the house of the basilisk, put all that together in the image of Hélène.
In any case, there was no reason to complicate matters. The fat diner had asked for a bloody castle, his voice had stirred up other things, especially the book and the countess, the image of Hélène a little less (perhaps because it was closer, not more familiar, but closer to everyday life, while the book was something new and the countess a memory, a curious memory, furthermore, because it wasn’t so much a question of the countess as of Frau Marta and what had happened in Vienna in the King of Hungary Hotel, but in the final analysis everything was the countess, just as clearly as the book or the fat diner’s phrase or the aroma of the Sylvaner).
What if I told them about the corner of the Rue de l’Estrapade where I waited for you at midnight in the drizzle, letting one butt after another drop into the dirty mud where a saliva star trembled. But telling, you know that, would be putting things in order, like a person dissecting birds, and they know that, too, in the zone, and the first one to smile would be my paredros, the first to yawn would be Polanco, and you too, Hélène, when instead of your name I put out smoke rings and figures of speech.
