A thousand pieces of life’s puzzle
are spread, shorn in divided shapes
upon my table, irregular spaces to fill
embedded in a broken whole
mystery of final design, zig, zag, jig
hidden in patience of thought
and vocal structures of imagination
fitting fragments into coherent patterns
constant revision of error, equivocal
impressions, matching sides and curves
corner squares, measuring like dimensions
geography of cognition in sway, swept
along in discordant harmony each day.
