Levam-no dois guardas, para onde quer que nos voltemos não se vê outra coisa, levam-no da praça, à saída da porta do region seis juntam-se mais dois, e agora parece mesmo de propósito, é tudo a subir, como se estivéssemos a ver uma fita sobre a vida de Cristo, lá em cima é o calvário, estes são os centuriões de bota rija e guerreiro suor, levam as lanças engatilhadas, está um calor de sufocar, alto».
