I am afraid of everything //
This Fall, we can walk through the water
like Moses leaving Egypt
and the paper houses will follow us on stilts
and we can call wherever we find ourselves home.
So do you think you’ll stay awhile?
I swear your can keep your shoes on if you need to,
but I just want to know if you’ll be here when I get back.
If a thief comes to knock on our door,
ask him where to go.
I am afraid of everything, but I am alright.
