Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompt #366; Theme: Plus One

Plus/Minus Me

I was a Plus 1,
till I became 1 with Minus,
who totaled me out to O.
I became my worst,
plus-sized and multiplied
for less did not equal more.

He was the dash,
but I was not his dot,
turning me into a Double Negative,
canceling me out,
making me Positive.

So I became a heroine–
not a zeroine–
in the right man’s book,
gaining British pounds while
losing American ones.
