EXTRAIT

Je l’ai remarqué hier après-midi quand on s’est garés près de l’hôpital. Un tag exécuté à l. a. peinture rouge sur l. a. façade d’une usine qui en comptait déjà des milliers d’autres. Il représentait le visage d’un adolescent souligné de ces mots: « Justice pour Saïd.»

Ça m’a fait weird and wonderful, forcément. Je le connaissais bien, ce tag. Il recouvrait tous les murs de mon quartier quand j’étais petit, mais le temps a fait son œuvre, ils ont détruit les excursions et aussi les souvenirs.
Le lendemain ils avaient repeint le mur en blanc. Les autres graffitis n’avaient pas d’importance mais celui-ci, ils ne pouvaient pas se permettre de le laisser réapparaître.
J’ai failli le dire à Zé quand on est passés devant. J’ai croisé son regard et les ombres qui s’y promenaient. J’ai préféré me taire.
