If ability were to come in a bottle

like Loreal,

I imagine it would be packaged in a

Line of various things like

20/20 vision,

Flexible limbs,

Clear speech,

moving legs,

walking feet,

and all the other things nondisabled people think

we, the disabled, wish we had

because unless we are

free of our imperfections,

we are deprived and miserable all the time,

and have no chance to live

a full life.

 

That’s why “Ability in a Bottle” –a product created

by the “normies” to help ease their discomfort

around disabled people, would be packaged that way,

because everything they do and say in the name of “helping” us

comes with a “lets help ourselves first” tag

attached to it.

 

Maybe I’ve just become cynical in my old age,

but I’ve seen too much,

and too much ableism

has been thrown at my face

that I can’t un-see what I have seen,

I can’t un-live

what I have lived,

and I have grown to believe

that society really, REALLY feels this desperate need

to fix us, to normalize us,

to make us look complete according to their definition

of “complete”, and if they can’t at least make us pass

as noncrips by bottling their version of ability somehow,

then, in the name of God, they have to get rid of us,

sweep us under the rug,

hide us in institutions,

pass legislation that threatens our ability to survive,

and pretty much sit back

and watch us die

while claiming that doing so

was the humane thing to do,

-they only thing

they could do…

 

But wait!
