i wrote rules about how to write rules
about not writing rules because rules
take too much time to write and rules
that have any truth aren't really rules
but a general feeling that which rules rules
our hearts and puts us against rules
so as to realize that the idea of rules
rule the understanding that says rules
aren't simply just a set of written rules
but a chaos that overtakes and rules
our ruling on the idea of obeying rules.
i wrote rules about disobeying the rules
so as to be able to obey the true rules
which do not need to be written rules,
but rather an unspoken living of rules.

This poem is really impressive. I think the line breaks make a huge difference, it's very dramatic. I enjoyed reading it!
