his silence gave them all words. and with words understanding. his image is scored by the words of solution. solution to the problem of him.

their sense in this world found in the absence. a story to tell in the quietness of his eyes. filling void with story in the stead of eating fear. paint the darkness with the steps of language built. they know this dance. this music. even if he won't give the singing.

and so the prison of words within or without for the boy. the prison of sight to see only the expected and not the mystery. the cage of a history of the someone of no one. and so no one. 

no one to tread the walk of silence. to brave the unknown. to wade the stillness.
