puzzle pieces

fitted together

without a box lid

unmatched edges

of data removed

until the next turn

images flicker

in streaming media

consciousness

a Halloween cat

looks up briefly

from the surface

the lake

on the latest maps

just a plain on the next

behind the veil

geology wiggles

out of focus

orange lure

for the infant

astronomer
