Silence is when soundwaves oscillate no more; a flatline.”
-Chito L. Aguilar
not simply the absence of sound
not solely determined by ear.
the absence of thought
the nonexistence of sensation.
silence is an interlude, an in-between:
the pause between breaths
the respite between words
the gap between musical notes
the lull between drips in a leak
the break between ticks of a clock
the interval between heartbeats
the hiatus between feelings.)
din and din
