Au-tism

the prefix aut
with variant auto

is to the self
or the same one

autobiography
automatic
autism

because that’s all Leo O’Connor saw:
children who liked to stay within themselves,

and was that so much to ask…?

to marvel at the incredible music
in flux within such an extraordinary

brain 🧠 lit with more synapses
than all the stars in the universe

was that behavior—
of all the light and darkness in the world, truly

so horrific in
its difference—so disorderly?
