talking to the wall

7.9.04

do not underestimate the power of non-response.
realize what this silence conjures up.
I communicate not to deliver information one way, but also to receive.
the lack of response to my questions puts my mind to work.
disappear into the routine of your daily life and think little of me ever again.
I sit and ponder.
my only response is from the wall that encloses my room.
the sound of my voice bounces back and lingers for analysis.
your silence is violent.

    fella...

    the silence you hear is that of those whose minds do not have (to borrow from frost) as many miles to go before they sleep...

    know that I hear you...
