Blackbird – quadrille for dVerse

My boy has always been a thief –
well, not a thief exactly,
more like a blackbird – fingers always there
nicking a slice of apple or a crumb of cheese

bright eyes, cocked head, and then away

knowing the first thing stolen was

my heart

Another quadrille for De at dVerse. As De says, you can use “nick” to mean “steal” or “pinch”. It can mean “arrest”, too, so you can be nicked for nicking something. Love that.
