It’s national poetry day here in England. To celebrate, here’s one of my favourite poems by Joshua Williams.If you prefer, you can watch him performing this poem and other performances from The Poetry of Autism on youtube:
Happy poetry day!
All the Angles
All the angles, they keep changing,
I look in the mirror and see a distorted reflection
The world is spinning around me,
And after all this, I feel dizzy.
I try to grasp hold of what feels
Like a drunken mind in a sober body
When the world around me spins,
And after all this, I feel tired.
I try to take in the world through my vision,
Blurred by thoughts of tiresome pain
While the world around me is spinning,
And after all this, I feel nothing.
