Justin, an autistic boy

written by: Daginne Aignend

 

He's fascinated by dogs,
knows every race,
all the characteristics
His parents allowed him
to have a cute lady Labrador,
called Bells, a bright steady light
in his restive life
The cherry wood grandfather clock
in the hall has his undivided attention
Hypnotized by the swinging pendulum
and motion of the copper-colored hands
He has no notion what so ever
where the pointers are for
The concept of time is
a total stranger to him
Perturbed
in a tumultuous environment
Obstreperous,
without warning
he bursts out in excessive
outrageous screaming
Afterwards, he tells
he had to make
the thoughts in his head
silent
