A desire of love in Montreal

Lascia che ti dimentichi, amore mio. Lascia che io mi perda nelle brumose praterie tra Regina e Calgary. Lascia che mi nasconda nel foro del Rocher Percé, dorma nell’umido di un campo della PEI o venga avvolto dalla bandiera della Nova Scotia.

Lasciami andare: non voglio più i ricordi vissuti in questa grande terra; un desiderio di oblio mi trascina in questi giorni. Non voglio più uscire o vagare col ricordo di noi due seduti sulle panchine di Montreal. Sono stufo di sognare il sole, il cielo e il verde della primavera. Desidero solamente lasciarmi avvolgere dal grigiore indistinto e dalla forza distruttrice di un fiume nei pressi di Moncton.

Non ci sei: non più sogni nello stesso sacco a pelo, distesi con il fiato corto e il rumore di uno scoiattolo che ruba i biscotti lasciati incautamente sulla panchina di legno.

Non ci sei più, a che serve ricordare il giorno in cui ci siamo rotolati nel grande prato verde del palazzo del Parlamento?

Mi manchi come non mai e il ricordo di quel primo viaggio oltreoceano è vivido e vibrante. Un pensiero stretto mi stringe e mi annoda la gola. Penso al tuo sorriso di fronte alla stordita del Convention Center del Maine, poche centinaia di metri dalla dogana americana; al passo incerto sui massi scivolosi della costa di Portland; alla sensibilità strappata dalle lacrime per un animale stirato da un’auto di passaggio.

Sono triste perché non sei accanto a me e io non voglio più vivere, non voglio più allungare la mano o fare il primo passo. Oggi, più che mai, il dolore è particolarmente accesso e mi divora. So di essere stato ingiusto con me stesso ma volevo affogare nel mio iter silenzioso di autocommiserazione e non rendere conto a nessuno. Ho pensato al nostro Canada, al nostro occidente, ai grattacieli di Halifax sotto la cui ombra ci siamo riposati, guardando lungamente la baia grigia e indistinta.

Lasciami andare dai ricordi, liberami, set me free, disponimi alla libertà per non dover sempre pensare a noi due…

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood

I’m bored with the concept of right and wrong
