Sandwichs J’ai séjourné un temps au cœur de l’East End de New York, tout près du pont de Brooklyn, et chaque midi j’allais déjeuner sur un ponton construit sur l’East River où se trouvait un établissement pour restauration rapide. Derrière un long bar, presque toujours désert, une serveuse très élégamment blasée m’aidait à composer mon menu en commentant le contenu des bacs derrière les vitrines avec de petits rires de gorge sarcastiques tout à fait typiques des filles américaines dotées du sens de l’humour.
De là je pouvais apercevoir les différents mouvements du trafic fluvial, aérien et routier convergeant vers cette pointe de Manhattan. Les innombrables bateaux, hélicoptères et automobiles qui passent sous, au-dessus ou sur le gigantesque tablier du pont étant animés à cet endroit d’une débordante activité quasi myrmécologique. Les jours de beau temps, avec le scintillement innombrable de l’étendue d’eau et parfois les indolents nuages dans les hauteurs, la lumière blanche si particulière du nord de l’Amérique conférait à ce spectacle une grâce d’image sainte, une « sainte modernité » (si toutefois cette expression n’est pas trop absurde) transcendée par la toute-puissance du soleil atlantique !
Me prenant un instant à part, il me murmura : — Je t’ai bien observé, je sais ce qu’on va te faire ce soir comme dessert. — Ah oui ? — Oui, oui, je suis sûr que tu adoreras ça ! Or le soir même, après un succulent dîner au cours duquel il s’était amusé à pratiquer un petit numéro d’œnomancie auprès d’une très jolie femme qui comptait parmi ses invités (débouchant bouteille de grand cru sur bouteille de grand cru afin de déduire, d’après ses préférences, son possible destin dont les péripéties immédiates se révélèrent, bien entendu, induire un chaleureux rapprochement entre elle et lui en fin de soirée…), Fabien annonça enfin, à la cantonade, l’arrivée en force de mon probable dessert de prédilection.
