Autism is not just part of me,
it’s the only thing I am,
and though I am self-diagnosed,
you could never understand.
Only fake autistic people
tell me that I’m wrong—
the real ones are all autigender
and they’ll accept it before long.

Hello, I am autistic, and
that’s all you need to know
before my name or age or grade,
before my favorite show.
I need for you to hear this from me,
for it’ll make me most morose
if you hear it first from someone else
who mocks the self-diagnosed.

I’m crazy into horses;
ponies and centaurs, too,
I know everything about horse-care:
how to groom and feed and shoe.

My gender reflects my passion,
it gallops through my heart;
But don’t feed it moldy hay,
or it will get the sharts.
