Abstract: Antes de sair abruptamente da sala, Adriano atira-me: — Eu sou um gajo que, se ouvir uma torneira a pingar, não durmo enquanto não consertar a torneira. Sabe porquê? Porque passei muita sede no mato, na Guiné. Se eu vir que alguém deixou uma luz acesa, volto atrás para a apagar. Sabe porquê? Porque passei muitas privações na guerra. Eis a guerra de Adriano: uma torneira a gotejar-lhe na fronte até cada pingo parecer uma martelada, uma lâmpada crepitante, com o filamento prestes a queimar, que lhe atira aos olhos uma luz em sangue. Coisas que não o deixam dormir.
Before abruptly leaving the room, Adriano shoots at me: — I’m the kind of guy who, if I can hear a tap dripping, I can’t sleep until I’ve fixed it. You know why? Because I was often thirsty in the bush, in Guinea. If I see that someone has left a light on, I go back and turn it off. You know why? Because life was very hard in the war. This is Adriano’s war: a tap dripping on his temple until each drop is like a hammer, a crackling lamp with the filament ready to burn out, that casts a bloody light in his eyes. Things that do not let him sleep.
