Du chaos et de l'ordre des choses by Stefan Psenak

By Stefan Psenak

« Elle dégringole les vingt-cinq marches qu'elle avait réussi à gravir de peine et de misère, en s’appuyant sur son ombre. Sa shirt est ouverte sur ses seins. Son maquillage a coulé. Du haut de l’escalier, il los angeles regarde lever les yeux vers lui. Des yeux infiniment durs et infiniment sauvages à l. a. fois, qui ne demandent rien. C’est alors qu'il se résigne à descendre, los angeles ramasse par le bras, los angeles relève sans ménagement et lui hurle au visage qu'elle est une salope. »

C'est ainsi que s’amorce ce récit poétique, avec los angeles rencontre de cet homme et d’une femme ravagée par los angeles vie. Tout de suite, il n’a qu’une pensée : los angeles sauver, contre son gré s’il le faut. Ils formeront un couple. Il ne sera plus seul.

« Cet homme, épris de l. a. femme impure, est animé par une quête qui ne le laissera plus jamais, qui intent chacun de ses gestes. C’est là le graduation et le recommencement de cette histoire. l. a. beauté stylistique du recueil de Stefan Psenak repose sur cette rencontre maintes fois répétée, maintes fois condamnée, entre l’homme et l. a. femme. « Du chaos et de l’ordre des choses » en est l. a. myth tragique et essentielle : l. a. « sainte écriture », en quelque sorte, d’une histoire qui finira mal. Cela, nous le savions dès les premières pages. »

Her eyes twinkled. ’ After her friend had gone, Shelley slid out of bed and padded across to the window. She had left her bag on the window seat, and she perched there as she rummaged for the small carton that contained the paracetamol capsules. Swallowing two, she looked out of the window, thinking how ironic it was that even in these idyllic surroundings she was still a prey to her nerves. But it would pass, she told herself firmly. The psychiatrist had said that all she needed was a complete rest, away from the petty jealousies she had never really learned to live with, and away from Mike, whose emotional blackmail simply wasn’t going to work.

I only meant— it smells,’ she said shortly, and he inclined his head. ‘Not what you’re used to, I’m sure,’ he commented lazily, and sensitive to any scepticism, Shelley’s patience snapped. ‘No, it’s not,’ she retorted sharply. ‘I’m from London, actually. ’ His response was as deferential as she could have wished, yet she still had the uneasy suspicion he was only humouring her.
