Les oiseaux de la mémoire deviennent toujours les oiseaux de l’imagination. Chanteurs aux multiples couleurs, ils attendent un verdict qui se résume à une parodie de piaillements. À mi-chemin entre la coquetterie et l’anxiété, ils répètent leur chanson, se roulent en boule et jaillissent dans la nuit. Ils croisent en route un étranger qui essaie de leur parler de l’amour. Ils n’ont pas assez de temps pour lui prêter attention. Jusqu’à ce qu’ils agrippent de nouveau les branches en fleurs d’une tapisserie tissées d’esprits anciens. Ritt ritt ritt tit tit tit.
