Today, she writes a poem

Love’s Cost

To calculate emotion:
filtering feelings through
equations of logic, values, worth.

The weight of one who lives in the world for others.
Tipping the scale:
tilting, sliding,
falling off.

One plus you equals?
The squeezing out of I.

For a multiplication of We that is radiant, divine-
but what of the subtraction of me?
