Aforismos y ficciones de la polis

I

Una ciudad es como una fuerza de la naturaleza.

Una ciudad se construye sobre los muertos; en derredor del fuego.

Una ciudad es una pira sacramental, urna donde reposan las cenizas.

Una ciudad es silencio.

 

II

Ciudad es una pregunta y ninguna respuesta.

Ciudad es una emanación del espíritu que tuerce, dobla, quiebra, penetra, rasga, rompe, modela y transforma la materia.

 

III

A imitación del cielo son las ciudades.

 

IV

Las ciudades son barcos y los barcos imitan a las ciudades. Pretenden ser ciudades vagabundas que vuelan sobre un cielo azul, húmedo y profundo.

Ulises fue rey de una ciudad flotante.

 

V

Las ciudades de la tierra y del cielo alguna vez fueron las mismas. Pero la razón decidió que ya no sería así. Desde entonces hurgamos bajo la tierra buscando sus antiguas riquezas, miramos atónitos el cielo, esperando que algo se nos devuelva por su propio peso.

 

Miguel-Angel-Estevez-Nieves-Aforismos-polis-01

 

VI

Las ciudades no tienen un solo nombre, tampoco los dioses. Las ciudades son deidades venidas a menos que se han conformado con las súplicas vanas y los sacrificios vulgares.

 

VII

Las ciudades más bellas tienen nombres de mujeres.

Helena, Hécuba, Helvia…

 

VIII

Cada ciudad es o una fábula

o una alegoría

o una leyenda

o algo más que la suma de sus partes.

Por eso en cada ciudad se sueña diferente.

 

IX

Una ciudad es un cuerpo entre lo divino y lo mortal. Tiene límites; está hecha de fragmentos y partes intercambiables; puede perder una parte y reconstruirla. Pero la ciudad es siempre la misma, en cada parte de ella está toda.

 

X

La ciudad es un reloj.

Descartes sabe que no hay mejor mecanismo que el de un reloj afinado como un corazón dorado, metálico y preciso.

Nunca la ciudad llega tarde a encontrarse con nosotros. Nosotros, en cambio, de carne y presa de voliciones que nos desgarran, nunca vivimos a tiempo.

Yo debí nacer hace 2500 años.

 

XI

Siempre volvemos a la ciudad después de un viaje, después de una larga vida, después de un largo y profundo sueño, después de muertos. Hay ciudades fincadas sobre un único muerto. La más famosa yace sobre una tumba. Antígona es el nombre de esa ciudad.

Gonzalo Trinidad Valtierra / Ciudad de México, 1986

Escribo porque busco. No sé qué. Escribo aunque esto sea imposible: es querer decir antes que las palabras nos evadan. Es evadirme a mí mismo; como toda evasión, la escritura conlleva una persecución —una búsqueda histérica—. No sé qué. Una persecución circular: como un perro que persigue su propia cola que podría estar hecha de palabras. Amo la filosofía. Mi relación con ella es como con todas mis mujeres: disfuncional, interrumpida, voraz, pervertida…
