Easy Crosswords is a book of poems suggesting a new reading of the familiar crossword puzzle. In crossword puzzles, the clues foreach word are formulated in a precise and unequivocal manner.
The clues sometimes appear as a numbered list, but often to save space, they become a paragraph separated by punctuation.  When I deleted the code, the grid, and the punctuation marks, that left only clues. The clues became parts of sentences or words that asked, like the puzzle, to be solved and perhaps  to be read as something new.
