Postal de Natal


A mulher está sentada no chão, no passeio largo. Debaixo de si tem uma manta velha, para se proteger do frio do cimento e do fim do Outono. As roupas que tem sobre o corpo são escuras, já muito gastas pelo uso. Logo atrás dela, a parede em pedra, escurecida pelo tempo, de um edifício que iguala em altura todos os outros à sua volta. Umas dezenas de metros para a sua esquerda situam-se uma cafetaria e chocolataria da Farggi e um dos restaurantes da cadeia Hard Rock Café, e ao redor da praça há outras lojas de marcas conhecidas em quase todo o mundo.

Aquela mulher não tem a metade inferior das duas pernas, notam-se bem as cicatrizes da amputação, em ambos os ‘cotos’, na zona onde antes estariam os joelhos. Tem o tronco um pouco inclinado para a frente, a cabeça cabisbaixa, o braço direito estendido em direcção a quem passa, a palma da mão virada para cima em forma de concha. Está a pedir, mas não fala.

Quase defronte da pedinte, à distância de dois passos, estão dois miúdos asiáticos, de sete ou oito anos. Vestem roupas adequadas para a época do ano e trazem mochilas às costas. Estão parados, também não falam, apenas olham a mulher. E continuam naquela posição de expectadores, durante vários minutos.

O que levou aquelas duas crianças a ficarem ali, especadas, a observar?... Terá sido a deficiência física da mulher? Ou a sua atitude de pedinte? Ou ambas as coisas?... E em que pensam, enquanto olham?


Nota: Surpreendi este postal de Natal na Plaça de Catalunya, em Barcelona, quase ao findar a tarde de hoje, 6ª feira. Mas idêntico instantâneo poderia ser obtido em qualquer outro lado do mundo e em qualquer outra altura do ano. Porque o Natal também é feito de coisas menos boas. Porque o Natal é sempre que os homens querem. Quase sempre mal!...

Barcelona, 14/12/2007

pin gente disse...

gostei de ler, nandokas!
ternura, compaixão, dor... natal... ou qualquer outra época do ano (como dizes).

é mesmo pena que o pior do mundo sejam as pessoas...

abraço
