Det er egentlig pussig, tenker du, at maten, for å oppbevares lenge, må gjøres uspiselig, nemlig dypfrossen. Du er ikke sulten. Vannet koker. D e to pølsene i kjelen har sprukket. D u er glad for det. Det er noe forløsende ved alt som sprekker. D u løfter h o d e t og ser ut av vinduet. Det snør ikke. Stjerneskudd. O r d n e t i en sirlig ring rundt champagneflasken som sto til kjøling i snøen. De små pinnene som knitret og gnistret og lyste hvitt, pulserende, det var hun som hadde kjøpt dem, og du frøs på hendene da også, men det gjorde ikke noe, du varmet dem i kåpelommene hennes mens dere så på fyrverkeriet.

Det skulle jammen ikke forundre meg om du klokken ni om morgenen og i en alder av femogtyve er full, er du det? har ikke du en eller annen jobb å gå til? fri? hvorfor i all verden skulle du ha fri i dag? forresten ikke min business min business akkurat nå er å sove hører du SOVE uten å forstyrres av sånne bøllete tåreperser og liksom-nostalgiske krokodiller som deg nei det nytter ikke å unnskylde seg du vet godt ihvertfall i edru tilstand hvis du husker hvordan det er da at jeg gir totalt blaffen i deg jeg vil være i fred hold kjeft med deg, og plutselig, som elektrisk strøm, knitrer raseriet gjennom kroppen din og du sier Din jævla megge ditt sleske sukkerhøl du er skjærende falsk det var du som .

På gangbroen står noen stille. K o m m e t nærmere kan du fastslå at det er en middelaldrende kvinne iført grå kåpe, og at hun kaster et eller annet, umulig å si hva, over rekkverket, og later til å følge det med øynene. Så går hun videre, i motsatt retning av deg. N å r dere passerer hverandre synes du å ane et innadvendt smil av forbudt nytelse hos kvinnen. I mangel av skjerf prøver du å stramme slipset og brette opp frakkekraven, for det er kaldt å stå der midt på broen hvor du nå befinner deg, både fordi det er helt uskjermet for den naturlige vinden, og fordi trekken fra de utrettelig og hurtig forbikjørende bilene der nede under deg skaper en slags kunstig, litt stakkato sno, men du lener deg mot rekkverket og blir stående der, omtrent på toppen av brobuens krumning, som om den var av sirlig uthugget m a r m o r og med løveskulpturer i hver ende, ikke av betong, stål og asfalt, og som om motorveien under deg var en rolig flytende elv i en eller annen berømt turistby.
