SECOND PERSON

A NEW POEM

by Rae Armantrout

Lemons, lanterns
hang late
into the evening.

But you are known
for your voluptuous retreat,

for leaving
your absence
on the air,

illicit, thin.

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Rae Armantrout’s recent book of poems, Versed, was published by Wesleyan. Armantrout received a Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry in 2008. She teaches at UC San Diego.
