“as the sky inhales,” by Rose Auslander (Poetry ’15)

2015 poetry alum Rose Auslander was recently featured in ALBA. Read an excerpt of “as the sky inhales” below:

& this great world turns
from us, as we turn

on each other, small as the young swans puffing themselves up too near
the turtle laying her eggs, fragile

as the sound of sirens fading, as all that blooms & dies outside my window,
I bury seeds
