Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

Perspective, contemplating the latest Neo sighting in which no words were exchanged

He saw the edges of things,
Frames, corners, red rugs
Not fuzzy but sharp
Like ironed twill
Observing the rose
Petals had dropped
Leaving bare, stark
The hopefulness
That had walked into the room.

Entering with an empty head
Sullen arms
And a heavy door shut

Nothing exchanged
Not even the stuffed air
Arms arrived empty
And left emptier
