Distilling Vision

Self-Portrait 1980 Oil on Canvas by Nancy Wait

Self-Portrait 1980
Oil on Canvas
by Nancy Wait


My thumb rises through the thumb-hole
Of a curved wooden palette
A tray laid with colors
Shaped like a kidney
Doing kidney work
Distilling vision.
I lay my prayers on the kidney tray
Placed before my body 
Below the heart.
