What can YOU say in six sentences?
I won't talk, for I have nothing to say. The Cat's asleep, as is the World. The Cat is dying, as is the World, but I've got nothing to say. I couldn't talk you to death if my life depended on it, but would it kill me to talk of life, if there were something to say?
I'm unwilling to speak... unless I find something to say that amazes the whole room. Therefore, I am silent as Death.
