“The greatest literature is that which needs neither be written nor spoken. Tell me, Henry, have you ever explored the genre of ‘silence fiction?’”
“Hmm. No, I can't say that I’ve never heard of such a thing.”
“Are you sure? Some people refer to it as sly-fi.”
“Sorry, still doesn’t ring a bell.”
“Ah, well, that’s a relief. I was worried that more people were beginning to find out about it.”
“Oh, I see. Is this some sort of hipster thing? Something that’s only cool while it’s obscure?”
“Do I really seem so dull to you? No, Henry. It only exists while it’s obscure.”
Some things are indeed better left unsaid.
