Introduction to silence:
It is colourless, tasteless, odourless.
It is not visible to a human eye.
It is not audible to a human ear.
The effects of the agent may vary.
Proceed with caution even with small amounts
as the heavy spreading guilt enters flesh.
Hear the silence.
It is louder than the sound of procreating.
Louder than the sound of dying.
Louder than the wailing of societies failing.
The only sound I can’t get accustomed to
is the sound of nothing
when I have become numb to everything.
