Crossword Puzzle

crossword final

Her memory doesn’t fit into memoir.
It falls apart into clues—
puzzle lines—
words—
that intersect
yet create no mapping story.

She notes the blanks
that ask too much,
and black spaces
that ask nothing
and seem to give
comforting pattern
to incomprehensible
across and down,
glimpse of past and now,
filled by tentative pencil
with worn eraser.
