“Two Monkeys, a Raven, and a Lizard King” Published in Red Wolf Journal

Jim Morrison, in 1969, courtesy of Wikipedia

I know now that wires
poke out through my skin
and stand at attention.
I hang letters and signs
from their silver, pin-prick
heads: autism, ADHD.
And my monkey still lives.
Ask your monkey sometime
for his name, and see
what he tells you.

That was an excerpt from my poem, “Two Monkeys, a Raven, and a Lizard King“, which was published in Red Wolf Journal on April 2. Woohoo!

Also, I used that poem as a jump-off point to write “What Does Jim Morrison Have to Do With Neurodiversity?” on my Woman With Asperger’s blog for World Autism Acceptance Day on April 2. That post was then republished on the Jim Morrison Project.
