Self Portrait, by Constantin Brancusi

A carved face.

Your chiselled features

surrounded by heavenly curves.

Hair whitened as if by flecks flung from your tools.

In your chapel of marble, with slender legs

Encased in linen,

veined like purest Carrera.

Arms folded, cradling your strong hands-

The soul of your art.
