We know each other but there is nobody here

to translate for us. We’ve talked before.

Now we pretend to be interested in other things.

Richard Brautigan, ‘The Silence of Language’, Tokyo, June 15 1976

During the first lockdown, words helped me think through what was happening; now silence does.
