Crosswords

I make crosswords.

I make them so that people can read them,

So that they can solve them.

I make crosswords with words that

Echo in their minds and slip off their tongues.

I make crosswords with obscure phrases

That transport their minds to the ocean.

I make crosswords that reek of human consciousness.

I make crosswords so that people

Can meet themselves in the gaps

Where the words haven’t been filled in yet.

And so that they can create the right words for

themselves.
