Poetry: Do You Hate Me?

Do you hate me because I have the unique ability to question my surroundings objectively without superstition to cloud my judgement? Do you hate me

Poetry: Arson Season

It hurts to hold this hissing light.
Sears the skin.
Leaves ugly scars.
Where it tears with acrid claws.

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.

Shoes on water, with only the sillhouette of a person standing in the reflection.

Poetry: Autism Is Invisible

Autism is invisible. The autism was invisible When I said the TV was too loud. The autism was invisible When I asked why people say

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.
