“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Mad Hatter

It surrounds me
Someone talking in the other room
Someone is laughing
But the silence is around me
Crushing me.
I can’t breathe.

I wait a moment, I blink
She’s twelve
He’s seven

I remember the night in the hospital
My sister screaming in pain
Waiting to be born
I heard her cry
Her son had complications
The four words muttered softly
“Your son has autism”
Followed by
In the same blink in time
“I’m sorry”
