Call me · Maisie Houghton

Call me when you leave
Call me when you arrive

Call me when
You die risen from the dead.
Call me when the roof blows off
the effortless blue of the sky
and the cat becomes a lamb
every springsummerfall.
Call me when the river dries
and fishes triumph into kings.

Call when You need me,
only when You want me
