This post contains audio. Listen to Chase Twichell read her poem now.
Waking to ochre birch leaves
sinking in the blue undersea of dawn,
I swim in the same currents,
Later I'll forget this,
and mourn the end of autumn.
What's left to be said
about being human?
Chase Twichell's most recent book is Horses Where the Answers Should Have Been: New and Selected Poems (2010). She is a student at Zen Mountain Monastery.
