Unsolved Strangers by Anastasia Clark

Unsolved Strangers

 

There were few words

In the crossword puzzle

We had begun

On a Sunday morning-

 

And left scattered

On a circumstantial sofa.

 

On a morning of

Pretending we knew

Each other- and

Had been a “couple” before

Despite the obvious clues

 

On a morning

When we had woken

Side by side

In a circumstantial bed

 

And riveted ourselves

To an unlocked window-

Wondering how

This all began.
