TELL ME I WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED

I didn’t know I was meant to jump

Are you coming?

We must leave behind the pantry

Where all our stocks of food lie waiting

You can hook up some ropes if you want

But no costumes

This is not for show

We will not invite the neighbors

Just you and me

Fighting our demons together

We must tear out our hearts and use them for lighting

It was written on a tablet long ago when Sarabhuti and LhaOre had just begun

Don’t worry

Grandma will be there

She’ll be holding one of the ropes

It’s glistening in the sun

We got up early for this

Tell me I won’t be disappointed
