Later on, with the fuzzy taste of a bad cup of coffee, he walked in the drizzle toward the neighborhood of the Panthéon, he smoked, taking refuge in a doorway, drunk from the Sylvaner and from fatigue, still persistent in a vague attempt to revive that material which more and more was turning into language, the combinatory art of memories and circumstances, knowing that that very night or the next day in the zone, everything that he told would be falsified beyond repair, put in order, brought up as a café enigma, a charade among friends, the tortoise that is sometimes taken out of the pocket as sometimes my paredros would take the snail Osvaldo out of his pocket to the delight of Feuille Morte and Tell: idiot games, life.
It might well be that he’s not only alone in the zone the way he is now in the Polidor, where the others, including the fat diner, don’t count for anything, except for saying that all that could mean being even more alone in a room where there’s a cat and a typewriter; or perhaps being someone on a station platform looking at the instantaneous combinations of insects fluttering under a light. But it might also be that the others are in the zone as at so many other times, that life wraps them up and you can hear the cough from a museum guard as a hand slowly searches for the shape of a throat and someone dreams of a Yugoslavian beach, while Tell and Nicole fill a suitcase with disordered clothing and Hélène looks for a long time at Celia, who’s begun to weep with her face to the wall, the way good little girls weep.
Will I see Marrast, Nicole, Austin leave, saying good-bye with a gesture that will look like a shrug of the shoulders, or talking among themselves because they will have to tell, too, they’ll have brought news from the city or will be on the point of taking a plane or a train. I’ll see Tell, Juan (because it might happen that I, too, will see Juan at that moment, in the zone), I’ll see Feuille Morte, Harold Haroldson, and I’ll see the countess or Frau Marta if I’m in the zone or in the City, I’ll see them leaving and looking at me.
