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.
