I wear my mother’s pendant some days
Not my style, really, gemstones bunched into a bouquet
I prefer
or nothing at all
I feel silly, wary
femininity does not sit well
I feel like I am in drag
Which isn’t what I was going to say about my mother’s pendant at all
I was going to say how yesterday when I put it on
I wore it backwards
and her gemstone bouquet
fell perfect
against my heart
