I am able to love you

Every other Sunday we visit the ocean, and you run toward it

like you’ve never seen it before

every time

Meanwhile, I take it upon myself to make sure our personal items

are well hidden

every time

I envy you

and your eyes-bulging, tongue-out, little kid runs

and so I

purposely do a bad job of hiding your valuables

In this way, I am able to love you

(the way you deserve to be loved).
