A Childhood Jigsaw Puzzle

I worked from the outside in.
Pieces of yellow sand
slashed to a sudden drop,
eggshell blue scorched by a paper sun.
Inside pieces next,
the one with the eyelash drawn
like an accent,
a lilting pause
as her hands weighed an apple.
A picture pulsing in the heat
of what came next.
