Dispatch from the Outbreak Zone: A Found Poem

Hearing voices,
extreme paranoia,
psychotic disorders.
much more work
is needed.
Tiny particles
get past the lungs
into the blood
on to the brain,
lead to inflammation.
Experts suggest
keeping away
from the busiest roads,
It is impossible to be sure.
The findings are concerning.
It should be borne in mind
researchers could not know
when participants were where.
The findings should be replicated
before firm conclusions can be drawn.
Episodes of psychosis,
seek urgent medical advice.
