Je saute.
Ça ne dure qu’un speedy, j’entends encore le moteur des voitures sur l’Hammersmith Bridge, au-dessus de moi, c’est l’heure de pointe, je sens l’odeur de los angeles ville, le printemps qui s’estompe, los angeles rosée sur les feuilles.

Mon corps a gardé l. a. mémoire de cette succion quand los angeles marée descend, comme si je n’avais jamais quitté los angeles mer, alors que je n’ai plus nagé dans l’Atlantique depuis vingt-cinq ans.
J’arrive à hauteur de l. a. fillette.
Le fleuve emporte l. a. petite, il los angeles veut pour lui, il veut disloquer son corps, séparer son espoir de los angeles peur, bannir le sourire de ses lèvres, et l’avenir de sa vie.
Elle s’enfonce dans l’eau argileuse.
Je plonge. Je l. a. tire à moi par les cheveux. J’attrape un petit bras glissant. Je serre plus citadel, j’inspire sous l’effort et je bois l. a. tasse – l’eau est salée, glacée.
La Tamise m’enlace.
