An autist diagnosed later in life, with a love of reading and writing, and some fairly quirky attitudes.

Poetry: Beholden

I can’t tell them it’s all right, but I can be with them.
I am still strong,
and I will never forget the green, and the wind from the high places.
—This is when I am—

Poetry: Annoying Noises

An autistic exploration of the sounds of the world in the form of a humorous sestina, a type of poem that follows a pattern of repetition.

Poetry: Encounter

Feel my gazeas a wild thing’s nearby attention—when you meet it, be gentle.My burrow is close,to hide me from sudden strangers.See my face as stone:harsh,

Poetry: Away and Apart

A powerful poem about imagination, the value of solitude, the experience of nature, and the separation between an autistic and the rest of society.

My Autist Manifesto

"I have seen the shadow of doubt, and I went out and bought a floodlight with extra batteries."
