maybe I’m neurotypically deluded,
diversity not included,
with certain differences excluded.

much time to stare,
focusing without care,
intruded with that glare.

only just knowing sometimes,
in quieter times,
dogs don’t bark mimes.

eyes contact too much,
electrified by touch,
broken needing some crutch.

no more seeing division,
trying to listen,
distracted by popular religion.
