PUZZLED

Blast this gift

It calls me from the living room

Spread out in bits and pieces

Initially heaped and piled

Now beginning to fall in place

Driving me mad

Usurping my time

My sleep

Days

and days

And nights

It grabs me on my way to the coffee maker

Pulls my eyes to that notched edge I sought for hours last evening

Gad

It was right there

RIGHT THERE

How could I have missed it

Aughhh

This does not match the image on the box

Not

One

Iota

Its colors trick the eye

Changing nobs to points

Clouds to puddles

Depending on  light and shadows

From back  windows

And pole lamps

It feeds my foibles

Addiction

Obsession

Frustration

Jubilation

Success

Back pats

Silent cheers

Yessssssss!

Finally total satisfaction at tearing it completely apart

And sending it to the next junkie

Enjoy!

Sucker
