maat

maat

night aware awoke
goes down
preordained
maat though
weighs the heart
in every stairwell
dark 
at every step
maat
with her spare scales
and her
interrogation a stairwell
everywhere
she 
asking are you
content
with your bargain
certain
you’ve gotten
value
for your harvest
for your trafficked soul
maat
invincible
invisible in
darkness
maat of a million
forms
a body a
dance against
invisibility
she
asking
are you
content now
are you
