I misplaced my birth control dreamt of infants for two nights

The first baby rested on my shoulder hands clutching at my blouse skin light enough to pass like Grandmother

I remembered my child’s heartbeat against mine when my sister conceived a friend’s baby

The second baby bundled in my lap blue blanket swaddled around her skin like my father, hot chocolate

I had no memory of her until my aunt lamented her lack of grans at my cousin’s 30th birthday party

The third day I refilled my prescription popped a melatonin tablet and awoke in relief to sheets sodden red
