On Saturday afternoon,

I hear voices,

though I am alone in the house,

no television or radio on,

and the neighbors, it seems,

are not even at home.


Do I have an overactive imagination?

Has Siri become bored and begun whispering subliminal messages?

Am I talking to myself?

Is the place haunted?

Am I developing schizophrenia?

Should I be fearful, alarmed?

Should I converse with the voices?


Yes, I will converse with the voices!

Wait….The voices have stopped.
