Magpie fingers

IMG_1282 - Copy v1

I note with admiration the glinting eye
As he peers between the front seats of the car into the recessed 
                                                     cup-holder
Wherein a little blue rosette lies there
And with idle magpie fingers probes then picks it out
And later in the day I come across that same rosette
Discarded - or was it placed? - beneath
A dining table chair
