Calling All Hard-Liners

Calling all hard-liners:

Divulge your honest-to-
Goodness raison d'etre.

Silence.

Nothing but silence
Through glacial yammering
“replies” to my challenge.

And if one has patience
To wait longer than any
Have ever yet waited:

Whisper.

Maybe a whisper
Every other leap year
Touching motivation.
