NEW RULES

This is what you do
in a given position,
as rising status
bears standards
and a suggested vision

At first unsure
of steps to pursue,
past tendency yields
on new passages
to pass through

Now stumbling with discretion
to win a part in this play,
you lean on walls
and on others
just to find the next day

Old rules become altered
in stage shows ahead,
as risk dances to melodies
of whatever is said

With ascension higher
humility is essential,
small success should give way
to a next time’s potential

Broader concepts develop
with firm repetition,
as flat scenarios assemble
into tangible non-fiction

Chances ahead
corralled raw yesterday,
become today’s moves
in new games that are played
