poem by Therese L. Broderick (Albany, NY, USA)


A young woman so drawn to the ordinary light
coming through her twelve-paned kitchen window
that she has climbed onto the countertop, one leg
resting in the aluminum sink, the other balanced
on the thin formica edge, stretching in front
of a white china plate perhaps already rinsed.
The rest of the scene is dark, less apologetic
than any shaded interior of Vermeer. Unlike those
maids and burgher housewives and recent widows,
this girl need not refrain from getting as near
as she desires to the common city streets beyond
her chores and corners. Nothing keeps her scant
attire proper or demure : no veils or aprons,
bodice or skirt or collar. No suitor is waiting
for her reply. Her simple face, barely visible
as a profile of reflected light, is pearly
enough outside the cage of things too rare.
