Assembling Titan

By Deborah P. Kolodji

puzzle pieces

fitted together

without a box lid

unmatched edges

of data removed

until the next turn

images flicker

in streaming media


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
