    Well, at least silence always rhymes. Getting the meter right is tricky, though.

    Of course, there’s blank verse, where he doesn’t even show up.

    He’s decided to change his wardrobe and make an autobiographical movie: “Silent Green”.

    There’s something wrong with my hearing aids. I can’t hear a word he’s saying.

    When he’s done you will hear the sound of one hand clapping!

    Finally, a poet I can understand.

    Best interview I ever saw was Andy Warhol: he sat there and said nothing.

    Maybe they could all honor him with the sound of “one hand clapping!”

    Silence can be more powerful than words. Gandhi should have said that, but he didn’t.

    Actually, he’s just trying to get the image of yesterday’s Argyle Sweater out of his mind.

    Listening to a mime

    Do a rhyme

    Makes passing time

    Seem sublime
