there should be a word
for the feeling you get
after you work many hours
a beautiful jigsaw puzzle
only to find
there is a piece missing.
‘the historian has before him a jigsaw puzzle
from which many pieces have disappeared.
these gaps can be filled only by his imagination.’
each one with her own strength
kinder figure out how to solve the puzzle
by working as a team.
‘be curious, not judgmental.’
for those who wondered
right along with me
how i would solve
when the symmetrical framing
quite possibly built upside down
on a table too small to turn the puzzle
turn the table or tear down the walls or the house
of the additional challenge
and just built it upside down.
