This Unadorned Vessel

Regina Puckett

I tried dancing and singing a pretty song

But I had two left feet so it all went wrong

I tried flying like a bird and whistling a tune

But I fell on my face in full view of the moon

I tried revealing to you my heart and my love

But you said I wasn’t someone you dreamed of

The joke’s on you because I’m something special

There’s beauty deep inside this unadorned vessel
