stasis

he calculated the full cost of them;
went and set she and he on the scales
and waited, and waited, and tampered,
and waited-

as their lives teeter totter
from good to bad,
love to hate,
passion to indifference,

and long they shall wait even still,
before Justice’s callous
hands steady them and
and in her blinded gaze

they will find themselves
either wanting…
or wanting more.

the ruse on us all?
there truly is
no balance in this world.

no, not for our kind.
