April PAD Day 30-Voices

tiny voices

constantly filtering through

hands gripping the wheel

and they ask my opinion

in a series of actions

and I try to answer

distracting, these voices

these chimes, constantly ringing

a leash, this device traps me

always in reach, bluetoothed

tethered to bodiless tones

and I think I have split personalities

they just happen to have

the names of all my friends

maybe they were all imaginary

and my memories, fake

convinced myself I had been there

confusion, catches me in snaps and pops

these tiny voices

rattle my ears, and in the end

disconnect, plucking it from my ear

enjoying the quiet once more
