believe

she had a pendant
that read ‘believe’
dangling between her breasts
i watched it dance
as she laughed
at whatever
nonsensical blathering
i tried to convey.

i have never been
a religious man
but the way that word
called to me
between the heaving
smooth brown skin
brought a bit
of the believer out in me.
