An Artist and a Poet on the Dream of Immortality

T Magazine

The artist Shirazeh Houshiary gives form to the poet Monica Youn’s wistful imagining of a celestial body — one that promises immortality just before slipping out of reach.



one day they showed me a dark moon ringed


with a bright nimbus on a swirling gray screen


they called it my last chance for neverending life


but the next day it was gone it had already


launched itself into the gray sky like an escape


capsule accidentally empty sent spiraling into the


unpeopled galaxies of my trackless gray body
