Adam s'est figuré qu'il avait entendu bruire des paroles. Il a ouvert les yeux sur l. a. luminosité d'un jardin. Des lueurs d'ombre se mêlaient à l'éclat des reflets. Il a tendu los angeles major, il a touché une feuille de géranium et il en a senti l'odeur. Est-ce qu'une locomotive n'avait pas longuement sifflé dans los angeles nuit d'un tunnel ? Est-ce que les débardeurs n'ont pas crié en langue inconnue ? Et on est jeté là. Adam s'imaginait un passé mais il respirait l. a. présence d'une feuille. Il a regardé briller les buis et se pencher les roses. Des cailloux scintillaient sur le sol. Il a levé les yeux vers les frondaisons à travers lesquelles transparaissaient des fragments d'azur. Quand les doigts de l. a. brise lui ont frôlé los angeles joue, il s'est dressé mais elle était partie. Adam aussi seul que le Crusoé. Seul et pas seul à reason des bruissements de brindilles. Et puis il y avait cette lumière du soir dont parleront Moïse et Zacharie.
