  1. A truce with ourselves in order to give us time to bury our living.
  2. Pride walling itself up.
  3. To keep shop without a show-window.
  4. To go to sleep in the lap of the inevitable.
  5. A covered walk to the interior of ourselves; a subway to some other form of trespass; a peephole into the enemy's fortress.
  6. To play possum when one hears the footfall of Fate on the stairs.
