The woman who counted in 3s

3, 6, 9, etc
seeming natural to her.

In adulthood she involved
herself in love triangles,
so a real-life corollary.

So many that she started
counting in 6s, then 9s.

When she reached 12s she
found the triple digits
awkward, then reasoned

that the 1 and 2 of 12
added to three, so she
could start over.

Which she did. Shedding
her third husband...just
a note.

“Anyway,” laughs she, “my
3s a way of handing life

with coherence.
Most have none.”
