X≠Y≠Z: No Z

X: Z left.

Y: It was your fault. You did this. I mean, I support you and whatever, but Z left because of you.

X: Because of Z. Z left, Z left us, Z abandoned us and why? We have such a blissful situation here, it’s a fortress of comfort, plenty of anything, Z just had to stay in with us. Was that so hard?

Y: You got rid of Z, thinking Z’d come right back, you said don’t come back and Z won’t now. Z’s gone.

X: Z will need us. We’ll never be rid of Z.

Z: You banished Z, it’s permanent, you did that.

X: We can’t tell people that, we can’t say that to the nosey, the truth is it has to have been Z’s idea to go or how will it reflect on us? How can we say we just got rid Z, said Z get out, never call, for what reason? You’re not like us? You negate us by being not like us? We’re not like us! Well we are and we aren’t.

Y: We’re exactly like us, so is Z. That’s always been the problem. You never wanted a mirror held up in your face, and that was Z.

X: Who does? And all the damn time! I don’t want to see that.

Y: You don’t want to see what you look like when you’re trying to look happy, that’s what you don’t want to see. Plus you were jealous. Z is twice what we are.

X: No that’s the other way around. We are twice Z.

Y: We are twice Z. How are we twice Z? It’s X and Y makes, wait, we equal Z? No. Hm.

X: We oppose each other and get obliterated by Z.

Y: That’s it. It’s that. So what happens to us without Z?

X: We find a new Z.

Y: It’s crystal clear, you’ve come unbalanced.
