“Coming Out”

School bells ring; children are excitedly coming out
Baby birds chirp letting mother know they are coming out
An inmate on release day; a grateful coming out
Taxes coming out of checks low enough to insult the highest
Healthy hair effortlessly coming out its pores
Or pus painfully coming out of sores
Graduating high school coming out of adolescence
Daughters circumventing her parents’ requests; coming out late nights
Avoiding babies; coming out to cum
At church amongst amens and hallelujahs; coming out baptismal pools
Parents and lovers fighting, children left traumatized and afraid coming out their room
Good people, doing wrong, coming out of their insecurities
Or enslaved forever by fear and people’s perceptions; thus never coming out...
