>our own construction monday poetry potluck #19-rules, regulations and laws

>A vessel that holds liquid
within its circumference
never leaking out
left to evaporate
leaving behind a film
which can’t be erased

A line that has been drawn
with invisible accuracy
you know it exists and
no-one may cross over

A well formed tunnel
built beneath a river
with one way in and out,
no u-turns permitted

A deep well with walls
made of iron and glass
hoping the glass doesn’t
shatter from too much abuse

Sending slivers flying in
a wrong direction,
piercing the surrounds of
laws, rules, regulations
