Coffee Table Perplexity This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Morningstar, Geneva, IN

Such lovely snippets of words
Scattered about as a jigsaw puzzle
The puzzle table lies in mess
Waiting to be assembled together

First I start on the outside
Fitting edges to the ledges
Then I look for repetitive colors
Suiting the pastel of patterns

As I get deeper
The puzzle gets simpler
Flowing piece after piece
Simultaneously from the brain

Pressed against the table's grain
The puzzle comes closer to finished
What started as vague
Is taking a brand-new finish

I take a second look
The pieces are all there
Nook by nook
But something avails
