Marisela y la desajustada máquina del tiempo

Obra de Anna Bocek

Por Denis Fortun.

Fueron innumerables las veces que esperé por ella en Prado y San Fernando. Algunas, sin el convencimiento de que se iba a reunir conmigo, porque no habíamos acordado nada. Sin embargo, insistía valiéndome de una suerte de vigilia en medio de los amigos, y me fabricaba un parapeto al sur de una esquina, la más popular de Cienfuegos. O al amparo de un estoicismo a toda prueba, sublimaba una paciencia que jamás he conseguido reconquistar, hasta que por fin, a escasos metros de mí, Marisela se mostraba con una sonrisa repleta de complicidad y terminábamos en el malecón.

En ella se daba ese raro desdoblamiento que por lo general los hombres temen de las mujeres: un cerebro moldeado a su antojo –con sobrada agudeza, criterio, instinto e inteligencia–, y sus piernas dos alargados puntales que sostenían un cuerpo hermoso fundido por la mano de Dios, un día que supongo no estuvo enfermo, sino de muy buen humor. Marisela era lo bastante avispada, lo suficiente como para no tomarme en serio, incomparable a esos pavos reales que abundan enseñando únicamente su plumaje.

Pero yo la intuía, y confieso que no hubo mujer en Cienfuegos que me gustase tanto, no sólo por su sensualidad, rayando en lo adorable, sino por su verbo, su cálida voz. Hablo de una historia que para alguien puede sonar a bolero perpetuo, por el que apostaba, además.

Con Marisela, sentados en el muro del malecón, pasaba horas conversando de cosas que no me hubiese atrevido con otras mujeres. Me convertía en un romántico empedernido, un reverendo comemierda almibarado capaz de regalarle la luna cienfueguera. Me transformaba, a tal punto, que Marisela llegaba a disfrutar enormemente ese minuto y saldaba su felicidad dándome un beso, varios. Cambiaba yo de tal forma, y al final de nada me servía. Marisela no confiaba en mí.

Marisela figuraba un reto para los deseos que se trae uno a esa edad, en que el desenfreno es la justa medida. No me cabe dudas, ella encarnaba a la mujer que, si uno contaba con la posibilidad de saberse aceptado, tu existencia se convertía en un privilegio. Un curso de éxtasis que bien valía la pena restregárselo en la cara a los competidores, que nunca faltaron. Marisela venía a ser algo así, como verle la ropa interior a Cristo -y me perdone el Señor por la imagen- debido a lo cerquita que te imaginabas del paraíso.

Pero Marisela una tarde se enteró que la noche anterior yo estuve bailando en el cabaret del Hotel Jagua, bien apretadito, con una flaca coronada por el peróxido. Y le aseguraron que hubo uno que otro beso vehemente; que acabamos la flaca y yo yéndonos para la Punta de Castaño, donde el mar y la Luna son el mejor aderezo para la intemperancia. Y Marisela, luego la noticia, ya no fue la misma.

Un día me confirmaron que se había ido a La Habana a cuidar a una tía. Tiempo después, alguien me comentó con sarcasmo que se enamoró de un sujeto de pelito largo, traga libros, dicen que con espejuelos plásticos, muy feos. Meses más tarde llegó la noticia: se casó con el “sapingo” de los espejuelos y se quedó en La Habana de una buena vez. Nunca más supe de Marisela.

Marisela se paró frente a mí pasmada. Escudriñándome con un exagerado desconcierto, por un instante me remonté a la época en que una bonita hembra, la que jamás me consideró un joven sensato, me trastornaba. Marisela se atrevió a darme un fuerte abrazo en cuanto arrancó de sus ojos la sorpresa. Yo la apreté a mi pecho con cariño, me separé luego sujetándola por sus manos para mirarla con disimulado mimo. Y concluí en silencio que, únicamente la nostalgia por esa juventud que se nos ha ido de forma irremediable, el amor que le tuve, me inducía con cierta obstinación a advertir en ella los encantos de antaño.

Hoy descubrí en el aeropuerto de Miami a una mujer que arrastra como pesado fardo una prematura vejez, con miedo, repleta de lasitud. Marisela junto a su esposo, que se ve enjuto, demacrado, supongo que con los mismos espejuelos. Y noté que al saludarme una enorme pena la arrebujaba al saberse menguada.

Por suerte, Marisela ha escapado de Morlocks. Sólo espero que se recupere pronto, al igual que el “sapingo”.

  7. GO!!!
    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
