My New Place


My new place
is behind a wall.
I'll buzz you in,
when you call.

The gate glides open,
then back, again.
No one will know
where you've been.

It's the only way
I feel secure.
You're probably okay,
but I can't be sure.

Once you're inside,
I'll show you around.
You need not say
just what you found.

Say I'm happy now,
here, all on my own,
in my new place,
in my house of stone.
