THE MATH: Vesta EXITS Scorpio & ENTERS Sagittarius = Performative Bitch


“Check it out!”

Vesta busts into the Weaving

Room, “A homie found

some pieces of me,
in a museum.”
Athena looks down her nose,
at the photo, in disapproval,
"Does it not make you
feel violated, to be put
so coldly on display,
and out of context,

Vesta shrugs again,

'A Portly Little Fire Plug.'"

"They should pay you

Vesta looks out
the window, "What is
the value of money,
