havana syndrome


it’s a balancing act
most people take for granted
like riding a bicycle
or reciting the pledge of allegiance

invisible forces
come & go like visible drive-bys
bullets replaced by microwaves
locked & loaded & fired
victims incapacitated
by way of an inner blasting
that is nearly indiscernible

conspiracy theories
run rampant around the west wing
the latest front line without a guard post
a virtual war zone
the enemy undefined
