Inner and Outer Limits
at first glance
they are dismissed
different from the norm .. scary
people mumble ‘retard’ under their breath
in a condescending way, assuming inferiority
their ignorance is palpable
folks with intellectual disabilities
do not live in a vacuum ..
they know an insult when they hear one
inferior? not on your life!
there are lessons to be learned
from those we thoughtlessly label
for them, inner and outer limits have no meaning
