Come out, come out, whoever you are….
He hears the song of no more closets,
but once a secret steps out into a rainbow
bigotry swoops to deface colors.
He doesn’t know if he’s brave enough
to open a door to sticks and stones
or ride a merry go round of spears.
Love shouldn’t have to wear armor to show affection.
