Alimony Or One On One This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Two meet,

One comes,and

there are three.

Two split to become one and one

and one is left in the middle.

now one plus one equals two

and one plus one equals two

but one plus one plus one

no matter how you try

will never again add to make more

than two
