The Subject That Cannot Be Told

Please write me a book explaining all the things that are unexplainable. Write it in a language that nobody understands. Send it to blind people, requesting they read it to dead people. The dead people will whisper the text to me when I die and I will write the book and then burn it. The smoke will blow in your face and you will breathe a healthy sigh of relief. This may have already happened, so please do not be alarmed or offended if this sounds familiar to you. Simply go about your business as if none of this ever happended.
