Man who watches

There is a man who watches. The man watches Soledad Sánchez Goldar. He watches her for a long time. He watches how they draw her body. The man who watches Soledad Sánchez Goldar thinks while he watches that he doesn’t have drawings on his body and that Soledad is not Soledad but Alejandro or Eduardo.

Why does Soledad Sánchez Goldar smile? Why, if they are drawing her body forever? The man who watches and thinks doesn’t have a ring, a bracelet or a necklace, either. Maybe Soledad Sánchez Goldar smiles because Celeste Sánchez Goldar is knitting a blanket with the family’s history. The boys who wear rings are gay.

Maybe Soledad Sánchez Goldar smiles because she herself chose the drawing for her body. Maybe because the sound of the machine with which they do a drawing on her body mixes with the sound of the machine with which Celeste Sánchez Goldar is knitting a blanket with the family’s history. “The boys who wear rings are gay” was told to the man who watches when he was a child. “Do not use your body” was told to Soledad Sánchez Goldar when they drew her uncle’s body.

The man who watches feels the drawing that Soledad chose on his own body. Maybe Soledad Sánchez Goldar smiles because she knows what happens to the man who is watching her. Maybe because she’s surrounded by friends. The man who watches for a long time has always known he’s a macho.

Maybe Soledad Sánchez Goldar smiles because she knows tomorrow they will draw on her again.
