A boy and a girl
sit side by side
on the floor.

The girl has a puzzle
her legs.

She’s searching through
an empty box
for a piece of her puzzle that’s gone.

The boy taps her
shoulder, offers a
piece from his own.   

She smiles and tries
to insert it
but the piece doesn’t fit.

She crams it in
tears the edges off

(hopes no one will notice).
