An outburst of anger near the road, a refusal to speak on the path, a silence in the pine woods, a silence across the old railroad bridge, an attempt to be friendly on the water, a refusal to end the argument on the flat stone, a cry of anger on the steep bank of dirt, a weeping among the bushes.

Lydia Davis, "The Outing"
