love boat

la stagione dell’amore viene e va,
i desideri non invecchiano quasi mai con l’età.
la stagione dell’amore – franco battiato

divago lungo le rive, in una splendida e tersa mattinata, amabilmente arruffato dalla bora a 80km/h. nel cielo i gabbiani si librano paralleli, becco a nordest, e assecondano le forti raffiche con ampie e veloci virate fino a un nuovo equilibrio. sotto il velo di spuma fioriscono le innumerevoli meduse.
c’erano anni in cui, in giorni come questi, m’inebriavo di tutte le ragazze che incontravo.
l’enorme mole immacolata dell’ermengald – ammiraglia della geriatric cruise line – sovrasta la banchina dissestata della stazione marittima. gli avanguardisti della classe ’99 sciamano compatti sul molo – hanno 6 ore di tempo per visitare il friuli venezia giulia – ma sono presto respinti e dispersi dalle folate di vento. un turbine di cappellini, giornali, guide, foulard si leva nel cielo e prende il largo, rasentando le onde. i gabbiani si gettano rapidi in picchiata e cabrano, con strida frustrate.
una coppia si avvicina barcollante e tenta di attirare l’attenzione: un’esemplare femmina del tardo pliocene, a braccetto con la figlia coetanea. indossano la tenuta da sbarco dei crocieristi: cappello di paglia ampio come un tavolino da bar, camicione decorato a fiori e tralci, comode braghe alla pescatora, sandali in materiale composito.

  • – hi! excuse me, where are the cannons?
  • – sorry? cannons, you mean in a museum or what?
  • – well, i came here in trieste half a century ago for the first time.
  • – a long time ago.
  • – during the allied government, you know? on a ship full of soldiers. i was the only woman.

abbozzo un sorriso, con espressione comprensiva e polisemica.

  • – ah, no, no, it’s not as you think: nothing to do with soldiers.
  • – well, i didn’t mean…
  • – just partigiani. all of them. screw them all. all the partigiani in the carso.

ora la voce è stridula ed eccitata, la figlia annuisce con forza.

  • – what about the cannons? where are they? we went there to make love, you know.
  • – ok, come with me.

la sede dell’anpi non è lontana.

  3. ora ho letto il post e lo commento (due punti e a capo):

    che tempi eroici di cannoni e partigiani e amori e morte e vita… chi lo avrebbe potuto immaginare, dietro i fiori e i tralci e i cappelli di paglia?

    io avrei passato il resto del giorno ad ascoltare le avventure della ragazza di mezzo secolo fa! forse ora sarei sulla nave! forse mi troverebbero all’anpi! forse non mi troverebbero più!
