An ASD Sonnet

By Michael Penfield

Myself, Walt Whitman? In any case,
Humankind transcends all labels.

Usually I act and speak and think
In ways autistic. Sometimes I don't.
Sometimes people off the spectrum act and speak
And think in ways autistic. Usually
They don't. If my argument's prosaic,
Blame Calliope. I take dictation.
