1. Gatherers 1/2/2003
2. Silence 1/2/2003
3. The House Speaks 1/2/2003


At first, there was absolute silence.
And at least, there was absolute silence.

In between, it's a(n)
Emotional silence, that'd kill with bare hands
Attentive silence, absorbed in the environment
Thoughtful silence, wallowing and preparing
Embezzled silence, bored in self indulgence
Quiet silence, uncomfortable and unwanted

[Hata Bildir]
