Autism Awareness Month Post Fourteen: I Joined A (very meh) Aspergers Dating Site

Hey everyone, I’m back! Over the last couple days, encouraged by talking with Beth from A Mile In My Shoes, I decided to join an Aspergers dating site. I’m a terrible match for all the neurotypical females I know (and if you disagree, chances are you’ve never met me),  so I figured why not try my […]

Autism Awareness Month Post Nine: Saying Thanks To My Blogger Community

Until I discovered myself as a writer. Until I discovered my voice as an Aspergian poet. Until I realized the story I had to tell, I didn’t know who I was, what I was here for, and what life really meant. I was lost, but the blogging community became my home, and over the last […]

I Take Your Equality And Stick It Where The Sun Doesn’t Shine

 I don’t believe you and it’s not hard to see why You all claim to be inclusive but judging by your treatment of us in the classroom it’s clear that’s another of your lies Failing to teach to the strengths of all your students you lose ones that struggle with forty peers so nine to […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On His Fears

I wrote this while I was sitting at Westfield Mall in Annapolis, Maryland. As you’d expect from me, I hate malls because I hate crowds. There’s too many people, and there’s too much commotion. My family can’t stand it, because they expect me to shop and be functional, but when I get into a mall I […]

An Aspergian’s Confession, Part Two

(This is the second part of An Aspergian’s Confession. If you haven’t, you should read the first part here https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/11/07/an-aspergians-confession-part-one/) I am a puppet, moving only by the strings of my fragile mind. Thin, frail strings, and when they break, so do I. I fall, I crash. I die. But no blood is shed, no […]
