‘you won’t need sunscreen, darling, we’re indoors’

the white noise we use to help you sleep at night

is a recording of the ocean playing endlessly

which is how the ocean moves, mind you,

she’s restless and alive like you,


i’ve come to love the sound of the ocean

whispering through your monitor

or the sliver in your nursery door to let the light in

because now her quiet roar is yours

and when i hear her movements on the sand

i am hearing you breathe.
