If my life were a number
line—for example—

My life starts: 0
I laugh for the first time: +2
I yell at my mom: -3
I win in school: +10
I lose a job: -11

Am I really the sum of these
the absent space of
my negative numbers
in opposition to the positives


Am I more of an absolute value kind of girl?
