Something fell.

Something changed things for yourself
without means to express the change without.
There is no badge but your resolve to crush the one who has fallen.

You dig a grave,
drape yourself in mourning wear:
a roughly sewn uniform of something else.
A cherry-picked pantheon,
feigned formality,
callous rubbed against itself.

Where came this unyielding adamance?
This baseless authority?
An absolute rejection wears away at all who miss the question.

A spiky path for those who love you;
a twisted hedge to the centre of yourself ;
an intimidating invitation to a game you made yourself.

Something fell.

Nothing changed you much at all.
