"Qu'as tu fait de ta vie, pitance de roi ?
- J'ai vu l'homme.
Je n'ai pas vu l'homme comme la mouette, vague au ventre, qui file rapide sur la mer indéfinie.
J'ai vu l'homme à la torche faible, ployé et qui cherchait. Il avait le sérieux de la puce qui saute, mais son saut était rare et réglementé."
