The floor has a ripple
in it, which is funny
because the carpet is blue
like the sea and the baby
is pulling and chewing
on your nipple so hard
that it bleeds
and her little legs kick-
kick you, her hands find
your hair and pull hard
and there's a roaring
in your ears that might
be the sea and they ask
you if you're blue and
you say you just need
some sleep then everything
will be all right but now
the floor has a ripple in it.
