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

an improbable assassin

they experiment with microwaves
sending subliminal text messages
and messing with my dreams via wifi

I wake up in a criminal sweat
wondering what in the world I had done
these past three nights

secret agent men keep knocking on my door
at all hours of the day
undercover cat pleading for me to open up
so she might escape the madness

of course I refuse to answer to anyone
feeding the kitty golden treats
and spending my days googling
searching for elusive guru
who can restore my identity
and cleanse me of my killer status
