La espera de los delegados

Joaquim volvió a preguntar si la isla daba al mar, y el presidente se impacientó. -Las islas, Sr. Embajador, dan todas al mar por definición.- Aceleró un poco el paso para minimizar el tiempo que pasaran solos, pero Joaquim no lo siguió. Estaba mirando un cuadro muy de cerca. Se trataba de un retrato del presidente mismo, con la faja y el bastón de mando.
-Yo a este hombre lo conozco del barrio de mi infancia.-dijo Joaquim-Ya debe ser muy viejo. Ya tendrá más de cien años… o estará muerto.-
El presidente, que sentía que el cuadro representa su firmeza a la vez que su compasión, se vio herido en su orgullo. –Lo dudo, Sr. embajador, pues el hombre de la imagen soy yo, y el cuadro es un obsequio personal del rey.
-Sin embargo aun cabe una duda, ¿verdad?-
-No comprendo-
-Digo, podría tratarse del hombre que yo conocí hace tantos años.-
-¿Quién?-
-El del cuadro-
-Pero soy yo. Se trata de mí.-
-Si Ud. lo dice-
-Posé para el retrato. Vi avanzar la obra-
-Aun así…-
El presidente miró en todas direcciones buscando algún escape inmediato. Elena, su secretaria, pasaba con unos papeles y un llavero lleno de llaves idénticas.
-Melina.- Dijo el presidente y enseguida trató de pensar algo para decirle.
-¿Si, Sr. presidente?-
-Por favor dígale a los delegados que ya mismo estaremos con ellos.-
-Bien, Sr. Presidente- Elena dudó un instante y se animó –Mi nombre es Elena, Sr. presidente, no Melina.-
Joaquim avanzó hacia ella y la tomó de los hombros. – ¡El nombre de mis hermanas!- Hizo un gesto como si estuviera por abrazarla y se arrepintiera. -¡Elena! ¡Elenita! Las he echado de menos.-
Elena, por motivos que ella misma no comprendía, se sintió segura y frágil al mismo tiempo, y sintió que tal vez las manos de aquel hombre sobre sus brazos tenían algo que ver. Antes de hablar lo miró un instante a los ojos. –Permiso, Sr. Embajador. Sr. Presidente...- y se fue como apurada haciendo ruido a cascabel con las llaves.
El presidente estaba confundido y una leve arritmia amenazaba con ganar terreno. -Conozcamos a los delegados, Sr. Embajador.-
-Si, tengo la impresión de que serán de mi agrado.-
Caminaron por el pasillo, y, a pesar de los esfuerzos del presidente, sus manos se tocaban al caminar. El presidente se alejaba, y Joaquim se volvía a acercar hasta tocarle la mano. Llegó el punto en que el presidente ya no caminaba sobre la alfombra roja sino sobre el mármol, y se acercaba peligrosamente a la pared.
Joaquim se detuvo -Tal vez duerma una siesta antes. ¡Imagine la vergüenza si bostezara frente a los delegados! Por precaución, será mejor que me acueste unos instantes.- Mientras hablaba se iba quedando dormido y cada vez caminaba más lento. Cuando alcanzaban la puerta del salón principal, balbuceó algo sobre el sodio y empezó a roncar en la mitad de un paso suspendido.
-A mi nadie me hace esto- Murmuró el presidente cuando estuvo seguro de que Joaquim no podía oírlo. Después se agachó y le desató los cordones.

El tan ansiado post cumple con las expectativas y las supera ampliamente

Mateo dijo...

Merci, socraM.

breton dijo...

jajaj. No se porqué me lo imaginé a Joaquim interpretado por Peter Sellers, y con acento indio.
Suena raro indio, pero hindú es una religión y poco tendría que ver con un acento.
puede ser que me esté equivocando.
en fin, gran posteo.

Socram dijo...

de rien Mat

papaf dijo...

Mat, me parece que el texto es rico, es decir denso, con mucho contenido en poco espacio... muchas se`nales a las qeu uno quiere estar atento. Otra virtud es la libertad que acompaña al fuerte estimulo: nos abre puertas todo el tiempo pero despues nos deja deambular con nuestro albedrío sin proponer soluciones únicas, sin atarnos... la única atadura es aveces un link con alguna otra libertad anterior, un rasgo de pariente entre las llaves de Melina y los codones de Joaquim, el personaje del cuadro y las manos que hacen sentir débil y fuerte a la vez.
Me hizo bien leerlo.
Un capítulo aparte merece bretón que cae en el sacrilegio alegremente. Permitanme corregirlo:
los acentos tienen mucho que ver con las religiones, la mayoría de los prosódicos son sacerdotes y los tildes monaguillos.

tazelaar dijo...

joaquim es odioso. eso quiero comentar. me cae masomenos.

papaf dijo...

Chanchivoy dijo...

buenisimo mat, mucha risa simpática.

sinonimo dijo...

parece peter celers porque parece un poco el personaje de desde eljardin. es que no les tienen paciencia.

papaf dijo...

Mat, en una segunda lectura creo que me topé con un typo: sentía que representa no debiera ser sentía que representaba?

quelindalluvia dijo...

las desopilantes correrías de joaquim y el presidente.

me caen bien los dos, y Melena.

esta bueno eh?

Crissi dijo...

It would be wonderfull to see the president dying while joaquim was making his speech...
dying of broken heart!

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.
