Unadorned

Prompt from Poetic Asides: tell it like it is

Paint and perfume
may pretty me up,
ruffles and rubies
could ornament me
like a prima donna,
couture and coiffure
might deck me in vogue-

but no measure of
fashion or fabric, no
prominence or pedigree
can temper my character,
veil my true nature,
change who I am
on the inside.
