Autism

Autism spreads like a latter-day scourge.
Battalions of scientists look
for a cause,
but find nothing.
Just their own eye
staring back in the microscope.

What if it’s like global warming –
a runaway, whose cause
is nowhere but in us
atomized individuals
floating more and more apart
because we choose to.

And the only cure,
the only fix,
is some great
dismantling –
like that old vision of the film
where time runs backwards
and atom bombs disassemble
and uranium goes back into the earth.

What then?
