The Varieties of Silence
an interval between notes
the banishment of dogs and phones
the pregnant silence
the angry silence
the absence of human voices
a solitary cell, a padded cell
a space for contemplation
the soothing zone of relief
a time for fright
the anguished emptiness
the unbearable absence
the deepest silence (death)
