Getting clearer

There’s a jigsaw puzzle
on the breakfast bar:
endless pieces
of a broken Victorian
Christmas. Specks of snow
in odd-shaped blue
mixed in with half
the words of a sign
selling warm chestnuts.
Miniature fingers
want to reach and create
a mess of the mess
but we wait
to see what it will become.
