the loneliest tattoo {poem}

I was subbing for a 7th grade class when I saw a student walk in with a big tattoo on her forearm. The tattoo was of two words written in cursive. I thought it said One Love. In 7th grade, the students are twelve or thirteen years old. 

I asked her what the tattoo said and she showed it to me. It said One Deep.


What does that mean? I asked.


She said: I don't have a dad...my brother is dead...my mom is...messed up...so.
