I Like It Now


is all I hear

and my tummy

feels amazing

and who knows

what my face is doing?


this movie is so funny

I am here


and feeling happy


not that alone

is better than with

oh no, I wouldn’t say that


this is fun

sometimes leaning forward

sometimes touching my face

sometimes squirming with pleasure


nobody cares,


not me no

not anymore


I am here alone

and I am happy

not that alone is

better than with, oh no


but if someday

I am with

ever again,

I hope it’s with an Aspie

like me
