Titian’s Salome

by Monica Youn

stepping out of the sun

pupils expanding as if

dropped in water she

sees all along it had

edges could be stepped

out of a garment or

archway that light that

warmth O once beloved

she no longer notices

your hair spilling over

her bare wrist and arm


Monica Youn lives in Manhattan, where she practices law. A former Stegner Fellow, she has recently published poems in American Letters & Commentary, Denver Quarterly, Fence, Poetry Review, and other journals. (2001)
