Since discovering in 2010 that I am autistic, I have explored what autism means to me in my past and present through poetry. Although Woman With Asperger’s in on semi-permanent hiatus, I invite you to read some of my poems writing during my exploration of autism at Raven’s Wing Poetry. I have linked to some of these poems here, and you can read the rest by visiting Raven’s Wing Poetry.
- You Don’t See It
- Color (A Modest Plea) (published in ShiftJournal)
- A Theology of an Autistic Body (published in qarrtsiluni)
- Glass and Concrete
- Epistle to J. Cole
- Two Monkeys, a Raven, and a Lizard King
I also invite you to read the poems of Steelville, a fictional universe based on my hometown on Middletown, OH. Several of the lead characters are autistic, including Helen R. Jones, an elderly African-American woman. She has been involved in two major story arcs — The Great River Visions (written in Summer 2013) and Digital Purgatory (which I am currently writing).
