The Scale Only Measures in Numbers

So many scales you effortlessly hold which cannot
Balance a heart cloaked from justice’s kindness
The measuring and describing in resentful alacrity
The painful experience genetically shielded were you
Giving no credence to a stranger’s feelings,
And the rolling number she sees each morning
Feeling internal disgust with every morsel
And the looks to match of a thousand scolding
Eyes with acid voices everywhere she must go
