Misfit Jigsaw

Shape is not unusual, similar to all the rest.
Recesses, protusions and sharp right angles.
Hints of greenish blue indicate a plausible location
Within the soon to be completed puzzle scene.

Examine closely with the eye, picture on the box.
Try it here. Try it there. Set it now aside.
Piece after piece finds a spot, jointly fit together,
Filling empty holes and closing awkward gaps.

Single piece remains unclaimed, sitting all alone.
Picture without space for contours set off kilter.
Indiscriminant shape becomes a misfit jigsaw
Waiting for that place to rightfully belong.
