The Mom Cave

This place for refuse
where it can all go down the drain
within white walls and a fish curtain
backdrop and no room for more than one.
I can control the ocean in the pipes
and wonder at the sound splashing
at the sides of the sink drowning
out the heckling beasts on the beach
just a few feet away from this bathroom.
This is my sanctuary.
