Chase Twichell is an American poet, professor and publisher

“Poetry demands that the reader give over his imagination to that of another, which is why we’re most deeply moved by the poets we most trust."


Horses Where the Answers Should Have Been

from Sayonara Marijuana Mon Amour

I must not want to be fully enlightened,
since I do not devote myself entirely to it.
I like distraction. Whenever I’m distracted,
a new room appears for my perusal,
or an ocean, or a neighborhood lit
by childhood’s untrustworthy flashlights,
half dreamed-up, half memory.
Or lit by the alpenglow or northern lights,
under the constellation Not Here Not Now,
where I have wasted most of my life.

(Copper Canyon Press, 2010)
