angel/moth

The third installment of our column, "Mixes from the Editor." Every month, our Editor-in-Chief will compile the songs she's been vibing and present them as a playlist for your listening pleasure. Mixes will be named after our EIC's favorite poems.

This month's poem is "Angels and Moths" by Olena Kalytiak Davis, in And Her Soul Out Of Nothing:

I don’t think I ever loved
that gently. And I’ve never
flown toward a burning
house, hoping, maybe
my faith lay in that
single thing left, 
in that smoldering filigree. 
I never reminisce
a sorrow that delicately shaped.
