This one is to the 2011 Poetic Asides April PAD challenge.
Prompt: “For today’s prompt, write a “what got you here” poem. For instance, write a poem about a mode of transportation like your car, bike, horse, etc. Or write a poem about what “got you here” as a human being or writer (like what got you started writing, perhaps). Or write a poem about what brought you to this blog. Or whatever other interpretation you might have.”

because i hear voices in my head? well,
not voices, exactly. whispers. well, not
really whispers exactly either. words.
endless streams of words.
