Pas sur la neige

By Jean-Michel Maulpoix

"Quelqu'un marcherait sur los angeles neige, sous un ciel jaune et gris d'hiver. À pas lents, un peu lourds, qui se rapprochent ou qui s'éloignent. Juste une silhouette, enveloppée dans un manteau de laine noire. Un rudiment de signe sombre cerné par los angeles blancheur. Allant, sans que l'on sache pourquoi, ni vers où. Devant lui, nul chemin noticeable. Seulement l'hiver qui tombe, recouvrant sans un bruit l'empreinte de ses pas sur l. a. neige.

Quelqu'un marche dans le silence. Quelqu'un s'efface dans l'invisible. Sans paroles, sans parfum. Personne à son côté. Parfois levant los angeles tête. Parfois baissant les yeux. Mais c'est en lui que tombe los angeles neige où il proceed de marcher.

Neige : le nom d'autre selected où chaque pas s'enfonce de son poids d'énigme."
