FORM AND SUBSTANCE

In some situations
a lack of substance
erodes
or drains
the effect and the power
of a beautiful form.

At other times,
a lack of order,
form or structure,
renders lame
a thing or being
that has strong legs
and inner power
to its name.

It’s apt to muse
upon which error
sundry people tend to choose,
and how that shapes
the nature of their game.
