Jigsaw Puzzle

Sometimes, meaningless
has a meaning
that fails to reach.
The purpose
of the unpurposed,
as it were.
Years later, it breezes in
like the last line
of a forsaken poem.
You wore your brokenness
like a country drapes its flag.
In your insecurity,
I located my surety.
Our edifice was wobbly:
We had to wallow in its weakness.
