History Flipping**

“She mimicks the speaking. That might resemble speech. (Anything at all.) Bared noise, grown, bits torn from words. Since she hesitates to measure the accuracy, she resorts to mimicking gestures with the mouth. The entire lower lip would lift upwards then sink back to its original place.” – Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Dictee

To meet diagnostic criteria for ASD according to DSM-5, a child must have persistent deficits in each of three areas of social communication and interaction (see A.1. through A.3. below) plus at least two of four types of restricted , repetitive behaviors (see B.1. through B.4. below).

  1. Persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts, as manifested by the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaust;ive see text):
    1. Deficits in social-emotional reciprocity, ranging, for example, from abnormal social approach and failure of normal back-and-forth conversation; to reduced sharing of ;interests, emotions, or affect; to failure to initiate or respond to social interactions.
    2. Deficits in nonverbal communicative behaviors used for social interaction, ranging, for example, from poorly integrated verbal and nonverbal communication; to abnormalities in eye contact and body language or deficits in understanding and use of gestures; to a total lack of facial expressions and nonverbal communication.
    3. Deficits in developing, maintaining, and understand relationships, ranging, for example, from difficulties adjusting behavior to suit various social contexts; to difficulties in sharing imaginative play or in making friends; to absence of interest in peers.

Specify current severity:

Severity is based on social communication impairments and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior.

  1. B. Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities, as manifested by at least two of the following, currently or by history (examples are illustrative, not exhaustive; see text):
    1. 1. Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects, or speech (e.g., simple motor stereotypes, lining up toys or flipping objects, echolalia, idiosyncratic phrases).
    2. 2. Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualized patterns of verbal or nonverbal behavior (e.g., extreme distress at small changes, difficulties with transitions, rigid thinking patterns, greeting rituals, need to take same route or eat same food every day).
    3. 3. Highly restricted, fixated interests that are abnormal in intensity or focus (e.g., strong attachment to or preoccupation with unusual objects, excessively circumscribed or perseverative interests).
    4. 4. Hyper- or hyporeactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects of the environment (e.g. apparent indifference to pain/temperature, adverse response to specific sounds or textures, excessive smelling or touching of objects, visual fascination with lights or movement).

Specify current severity:

Severity is based on social communication impairments and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior.

  1. C. Symptoms must be present in the early developmental period (but may not become fully manifest until social demands exceed limited capacities, or may be masked by learned strategies in later life).
  2. D. Symptoms cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of current functioning.
  3. E. These disturbances are not better explained by intellectual disability (intellectual developmental disorder or global developmental delay. Intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder frequently co-occur; to make comorbid diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability, social communication should be below that expected for general developmental level.

Note: Individuals with a well-established DSM-IV diagnosis of autistic disorder, Asperger’s disorder, or pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified should be given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Individuals who have marked deficits in social communication, but whose symptoms do not otherwise meet criteria for autism spectrum disorder, should be evaluated for social (pragmatic) communication disorder.

did your skin pull frays from dining table linen did
fruit knives carve toes out of calcified chairs did
my words crack our wooden coat hanger apart did 

an absence of apology break this bottleneck spell did
it then crush our chalk-lined hands did
sirens come get me after you called did 

they scream in my body like a lost child did 
every impulse grow iridescent ash fall did
thirty-three steps on our way to mend did 

that feel too hard for us to swallow did 
you think of my grandmother when you told on me did 
you dream about tracing a line to yours did

I ask too much of you with a dirty dish tongue did
you spit out chicken bones with coals in your socks did
I wrap seventeen sheets across my face then stop did

it hurt too much to tell the truth on this couch did
it burn too much to leave our bathroom lights on did
you hang them out after dark for my corridor did

you see your imperfections at sunrise did
you forgive me for finding its shadows did
you let me forgive you too did you let me before you did

Ketchup Chip Wilson

I sublimated my violent temper 
to give myself 50 orgasms in one night

I picked my egg shell towel from off the floor
and made a leather jacket out of your Birkenstocks

I changed my name to petty 
just to change it back to Pretty Petty

I told myself I was enough 
enough times my tongue fell off
and I said, “oh no” except it sounded more like

I realized everything I ever said to you sounded like a Hamlet
soliloquy remixed into a 24-hour lo fi hip hop anime girl studying YouTube video 

I forgot everything you ever said to me 

I wrote a sci-fi thriller about us taking down Chip Wilson 
just to wake up to realize you’re Chip Wilson’s assistant

I want to dress up for Halloween as Ketchup Chip Wilson 
but don’t want to appropriate white people culture

(anyone… have any advice on that?) 

if I projected all my intergenerational trauma onto you 
then why aren’t you playing and selling out multiple nights in a row at VIFF?

I will never be a Christmas person but this year you left me
enough of you to weave a tinsel of saliva around my winter boots

as tired and stretched and ridiculous as an American
Girl doll accessory hair ribbon

In a double exposure, Jane is shown before a white wall and a wooden bookshelf. Jane has black hair with cut bangs, that otherwise falls about the chin, and light skin. Jane wears a half-sleeved black v-neck blouse or dress, and hornrim eyeglasses. Jane is seated, and holds half of a large reddish orange citrus fruit, or pomegranate.

Jane Shi is a queer Chinese settler living on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral homelands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. Her writing has appeared in Briarpatch, Canthius, Plenitude, and Arc, among others. Her other accolades include being called aggressive, a Spoiled Brat, a no xiaojie, and “someone who should dress like her intellect.” Clinicians have applied Freud to her bisexual sitting habits to disastrous results. Someone once said she has BPD and should get help. Someone else asked her to google how to assert boundaries. She made up her own search engine which told her she’s autistic, instead. She wants to live in a world where love is not a limited resource, land is not mined, hearts are not filched, and bodies are not violated.
