Example text

A paisagem era seca, árida, sem um fio de água à vista. Diante desta desolação era inevitável que caim recordasse a dura caminhada feita depois de o senhor o ter expulsado do fatídico vale onde o pobre abel para sempre ficara. Sem nada para comer, sem uma sede de água salvo aquela que, por milagre, veio a cair finalmente do céu quando as forças da alma já de todo minguavam e as pernas ameaçavam ir-se abaixo a cada passo. Ao menos, desta vez não lhe faltará comida, os alforges vêm cheios até à boca, lembrança amorosa de lilith que, pelo visto, não nos saiu tão má dona de casa como pelos seus dissolutos costumes poderia pensarse.

Arrastando os pés de cansaço, avançava por um descampado sem um arruinado casebre à vista ou outro sinal de vida, uma solidão desgarradora que o céu raso aumentava ainda mais pela ameaça de uma chuvada iminente. Não teria onde recolher-se, a não ser debaixo de alguma árvore entre as poucas que, lentamente, à medida que caminhava, iam assomando a copa acima do horizonte próximo. As ramagens, em geral escassamente povoadas de folhas, não garantiam protecção digna desse nome. Foi então, ao caírem as primeiras gotas, que caim deu por que tinha a túnica suja de sangue.

Como um homem. Disfarçando o melhor que podia a ansiedade e a fome que lhe faziam tremer as pernas, avançou para o estaleiro. Se por natural desconhecimento os operários o confundiram com um daqueles ociosos que em todas as épocas da humanidade se detiveram para ver trabalhar os outros, logo perceberam que quem ali estava era mais uma vítima da crise, um triste desempregado à busca de uma tábua de salvação. Quase sem que caim tivesse necessidade de dizer ao que ia, apontaram-lhe o olheiro que vigiava o grupo, Fala com ele, disseram.
