Who’s Coming Out?

Who’s coming out?
I broke something today.
This is reason to celebrate.
I hope it’s not too late.
Who’s not afraid of the curfew?

Who’s coming out?

They killed the past last week.
Now it is among the living.
We dare not think or speak
Of grace of man.

Who’s spontaneous?
And who relies on muscle memory?
Who hasn’t caught it?
Who’s contagious, and who’s under quarantine?
My friends all want to know

Who’s coming out?

Who’s embryonic,
And who’s already half asleep?
I’m still afraid to find.

The night is stillborn.
