Dear Epistolary Novelist

We quite like what you’ve accomplished—
Impressively ventriloquist—

But we do have a few questions
As the voices you’ve selected.

Do you have to pretend you’re us?
We can write, too. Just look at this.

Why so much fondness for pretense
When you’re writing in your own hand?

Still, wrapping our thoughts around it,
We think we, finally, get it—

You pretend the voices you do
Since words all ventriloquize you.
