Algo Poetry-Behind the Lines

Fragment #18- The Jigsaw Jinxed

In the liminal spaces between poetry collections, I will be periodically posting previously unpublished hand written fragments,the orphaned odes that did not find a home in any collection.

This is the 18th such fragment of some of the copious couplets and isolated ideas that did not turn into full form poems, but that you may find resonance with. I wanted to highlight where even the embryonic nature of two lines of rhyme can come from and maybe what full works they were influenced by or would go on to influence.

“The Jigsaw Jinxed” began as a play on words with two…. homonyms… words that sound the same but are written differently/ carry different meaning from each other. In this case they were “Peace” and “Piece”. Piece led me to a jigsaw puzzle and then “Piece” led to a ….synonym ….”Part”. So homonyms and synonyms form the box that this particular poetic puzzle arrived in.



I am delighted to say that my first collection, Be.aGaIN, has been released globally on Apple Books
