My spouse earns $84,000 per year. I earn $60,000. So, if I get $1,000 per month in spousal maintenance, then our incomes will be even. Is that how spousal maintenance works?

No. Spousal maintenance is not intended to equalize incomes. The purpose of spousal maintenance is to help the receiving spouse meet their reasonable needs and to help them transition to independence.
