Voices

Can you hear the voices?

neighbors screaming late at night

boys on the stoop being boys give you a fright

dad looking for his dog again which one is lost?

remind me when did we change the baby last?

chattering cabal of punch bowl nugs pretending they’re so slick

did she assign more homework for next week?

what did you say your name was again

it was nice to meet you but I think we’re done

telling me what I should have been

and cursing me for what I did or didn’t do again

the alarm never had a chance to wake me

watching the sheep run through my dream

no need to count there are so many

they bleat nonsense on repeat I have heard already

remote control is broken in vain we cannot stop

the droning buzz of tyranny oppressing from the top

Inside my head there are even more.
