La escritura es un gato


Muchas veces me han preguntado por qué escribo, tema que ya trate hace algún tiempo en este ciberespacio. Sin embargo creo que sería más significativo el preguntar ¿Qué es la escritura en si para mí? ya que la escritura es el “caracú”, el motivo principal de mis desvelos y el de los que abrasan esta pasión.
Creo que esta respuesta la ha respondido en forma muy clara la escritora paraguaya Lourdes Espínola en uno de los poemas de su libro "Desnuda en la palabra", publicado por Ediciones Torremozas, Madrid en octubre de 2011.

El poema es un jaguar
Tendido en mi cama,
Tibio, colorido,
Feroz y con pezuñas.
El poema me lame
Y me rasguña.
Me frota entre sus dedos
Hasta hacerme dormir.
Y solo allí
Y de un zarpazo,
Me toma entera.
Suya,
Entera y por asalto.

Los antiguos Egipcios tenian a Thot, representado en algunas ocasiones con cabeza de Ibis y cuerpo de hombre, como el dios o patrón de los escribas. Sin embargo creo que debería haber sido un gato el que tendría que haber llevado esa tarea en el panteón del antiguo país del Nilo.
Aunque, como se ve en el poema de Lourdes, se está comparando al felino con la poesía, creo que este no sólo la representa sino que también lo hace con la narrativa y la escritura en general.
Así como el felino “la musa” de la escritura es un ser independiente y muy celoso. El no hacerle caso en el momento que ella se nos presenta puede traernos su indiferencia por varios días. También como el felino, y como dice Lourdes en su poema, nos espera agazapado para cuando menos lo esperemos “de un zarpazo” tomarnos “Enteros y por asalto” no soltandonos hasta que “el”o “ella” lo decidan. Es por esta razón que los que escribimos desaparecemos dentro del teclado por varias horas o nos levantamos a las horas mas increíbles de la noche sin importar donde, o con quien, estemos. Sin importar que, después de una noche de desvelo, deberemos ir a nuestros respectivos trabajos.
Asi que la próxima vez que vean a un felino agazapado, presten atención , tal vez este aguardándolos para introducirlos en el maravilloso y fantástico mundo de la escritura.
