Lucas Scheelk has written a poem Descendant on tumblr


Through intuitive familiarization
I am an Autistic descendant
Of Frankenstein’s Creature,
Sherlock Holmes,
Sondheim’s Georges Seurat,
Jerry Espenson,
And Jake Bohm.
Some might claim illegitimacy.
With each word I write
I carry that badge
I know the responsibility
And I accept the challenge
To help change the discourse
Of my Autistic ancestry.
“Nothing about us, without us.”
