Representantes del Orden Establecido —continuó Mor­ gan— si lo prefiere usted así. Le dolía la mandíbula y el amor propio; deseaba escan­ dalizar a su huésped y agresor, aun a riesgo de provocarlo. Pero éste lo seguía con docilidad, olvidado de todo lo que 110 fuera encontrar una fórmula para expresar su filosofía 40 de una manera convincente e incluso admirable para la mujer común. —Eso es contrario a la naturaleza —argüyó, llevándose una mano al mentón. Juana no pudo dejar de recibir esta sentencia con una risita hiriente, aunque parecía exclusivamente preocupada en acelerar el descenso del pequeño grupo por una escalinata de mármol.

Ticos de Batman eran igualmente reminiscentes— el reper­ torio de los años cincuenta. Una muralla entera, más transparente que el vidrio, se descorrió por sí sola. El espacio interior y el exterior se abrazaron estrechamente como una pareja danzante en la Puerta del Beso, en el momento mismo en que esta alusión a Brancussi era superada, al encenderse, cerca del lecho circular de la ninfa granjera, que parecía cubierto de espuma— una auténtica escultura del Centro de Estudios Visuales Avanzados del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachu3sets, de luz estroboscópica.

En las salas de espera y en los pasillos del juzgado, la compacta clientela de turno, amontonada en una sombría pasividad, era quizás el primer contingente de invasores. Los Tribunales Populares vendrían luego.
