I found it.
The rule book.
It was here all along - like you said it must be.
I must have hidden it under all the random shit I collect
in my day to day thoughts on life and people.
Or it fell behind the couch, when we moved it that one time,
remember, to get the remote
or was it the phone?
But, I found it.
And I can read it again.
I won't make any more mistakes
or forget what the next move might be.
I'll remember when to get concerned, sad or angry,
maybe even when to be happy.
And now the playing field is level or even,
I'm not one for games
- but I found it, and that's all that counts.
