Headline Poem 12/9/14 -- I believe in you like

I believe in you like 

I believe in you 
like I believe in dust devils 
and mountain lions,
       allowances lurking and 
       lingering for payment
for
exceeding 
expectations 
and rumbling through 
outer wares and fair shares. 

I believe in you 
like I believe in 
used shoes, laces gently 
      borrowed 
and twisted with     neon 
   plastic at the ends
so they don't 
       slip      
         through.
