the introduction of rules

how did we get them
we had no rules at the beginning
we were on fire, back then

six months on they swept through
ever so effectively
killing bright lights we’d lit

unwritten, unspoken, unassuming
these for you and those for me
as insurance against loss
for what was newly acquired

a brittle structure, climbing upwards
sky-scraper high

primed to collapse
from the pressure of a hand
gently rested
on the handle of a closing door
