This paper offers an exercise of discourse analysis. It is shown why text structure and text global meaning should be understood with respect to deictic options. By combining temporal and aspectual values of Portuguese tense forms with different ways of setting up temporal anchor, I give a blow-by-blow account of how the general idea of atemporality is constructed and performed in discourse. The piece of text selected is a segment of Pedro Rosa Mendes’ first novel: Baía dos Tigres.
