Coming out

  1. Have you tried to stuff a bag with twenty-seven kittens?
  2. Get a toddler’s hands to stay inside her little mittens?
  3. Seventy and three balloons within a purple Beetle?
  4. Chocolate cake and whipping cream through hypodermic needle?
  5. Have you tried to stop the flow of mighty Old Man River?
  6. Halt a massive pine after lumberjacks yell out, “Timber”?
  7. Rainbows can’t be forced inside for forty-seven years;
  8. Eventually, they’ll come on out—through laughter, claps, or tears.
