Note For Anyone Writing About Me

Guide to Writing About Me

I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.

I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Three More Poems

I think that putting out the rest of my NaPoWriMo poems in sets of three seems good. Gives a good post length on poem days, still gives enough days for things that are not poems.

Unsafe

Silent, rocking.
I know what I saw.
I know what you said.
What you said.
I thought you were safe.
I was wrong.


The Lie

Worst-case?
You don't want to know.
Not really.
Most likely case?
You don't want to believe.
Not really.
You don't want to see the world we live in.
You don't want to know how this works.
You want to think differences are celebrated.
You want to believe the lie.
I wish I could.


Lone Wolf

Alone.
Not lonely,
Just alone.
Do you know the difference?
In a crowd, where no one understands.
Lonely, not alone.
In my room, writing.
Alone, not lonely.
The lone wolf needs no pack.
