The most difficult jigsaw – Jen Anderson

 

Each piece must be compared

for size, shape and colour:

turn ninety degrees and look

and turn and look again.

Repeat until our interlocking lines

are impossible to distinguish.

With respect to each other

we are equally spaced;

without respect it is obvious

who fits in on top.

What makes our puzzle so difficult?

All sides are cut from the same picture.

But we are double-sided and

believe me, this is only half the story.
