Five Glimpses of Autism

 

 

hide

 

deep within a dream

protect all the happiness

that others will steal

 

+

 

prepare

 

fingers on my hand

wander here before my eyes

helping me center

 

+

 

whisper

 

quiet lullabies

to calm my racing heartbeat

from this noisy world

 

+

 

living

 

I hold both my ears

tight to hide your constant breath

judging me daily

 

+

 

artist

 

tear apart vision

and bind pieces together

on your new canvas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parole Board

 

 

do you know why you are here, son

yes ma’am

are you sorry for what you did

sir, I am not guilty of the charges, sir

if you maintain this attitude you will

will have to serve your full time, son

sir, if you maintain your attuitude

you can just go fuck yourself, sir

you are excused from this meeting, son

thank you sir

 

afterword (lawyer)

 

what the fuck did you do in there?

 

I did exactly what you said. I talked

gentle and said sir and maam

in every sentence

 

that’s not what I’m talking about and you know it

 

I told the truth, that’s all

 

Richard, how many times have I told you

as long as you tell the truth

you will never be free

this is not about the truth

this is about your life
