riots not quiet

itemize

The present’s been misplaced,
we’ve been too busy
fussing and dying
over chances to correct
past mistakes.

These ghosts
we now champion
quarrel
with what’s known
only to mortal flesh,
blurring lines
until difference
reveals itself
to be a misreading
of codified ambiguity.

What then have we
to account
for alienation placed
upon the other
throughout centuries?

Always changing
shape name origin
(rigid)
feeling
(fluid) - cyclical
dizzying
doomed to repetition.

- Is it an autistic thing to be unable to pick up some smells, but hypersensitive to others? Like, I can never smell off-milk, I’m noseblind to that smell to the point I need a different test to determine if it is off, but I can’t stand the smell of most detergents, soaps or air-fresheners. ⚡🔥🌸

Being hypo- and hypersensitive to different sensations is a common autistic trait.


- Iiaat know more than one language but only go nonverbal in one language? Usually I’ll go nonverbal in English but continue to speak in Spanish to my sister, though only my sister, I can’t talk to anyone else. Are both of those an autism thing? Nonverbal in one language and going nonverbal with the exception of one person? 🔴☡

I think yes.


- iiaat to latch onto people? like when your friend group goes somewhere youll only go with them if/when that person goes, and you message them like constantly, and youll go to them for answers to all ur problems, and you sorta depend on them? like if theyre not in school youll have a second of ‘oheck i cant do today nope bye’. this sounds rlly weird now ive worded it lol -🐓🔇

I think that sounds like social anxiety of sorts. Don’t think it is an autistic trait, though? Correct me if I’m wrong.


- iaat to not be able to express most feelings without crying? Like, something should only be slightly upsetting but you end up crying a ocean and curling into a sad little ball. - 🥀👃🏾 (rose nose)

I don’t know, being very sensitive can be an autistic thing but I don’t think it is autism exclusive.


- Is it an autistic trait to not understand your dreams or not have dreams that make sense? Like who you are changes and so does your perspective and the entire plot? None of my friends have dreams like this so? Idk. Just a thought.

I don’t think so.

- is it normal to have hyperempathy for a specific group of people? like, i always experience hyperempathy with elderly people

There is no such thing as normal! Hyperempathy can be an autistic trait but it is also a thing on its own.
