I came across a broken bird ornament balancing on the seat of a cream Vespa in an alley. A birdcage, a fixed or portable prison of wire. An ornament used to adorn embellish and beautify. A peculiar character / figment of the imagination / internal creature engages in a private game (re-sticking and re-positioning broken bird ornaments).
