blurred-out

The fifth 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 "sonnet which, unfortunately, will not fit on a post-it note" by isabelthespy:

Remember all the soggy, blurred-out days.
Remember what you know: this is such stuff
as life is made on, which could pass you by
again, which has devised so many ways
to leave you. Make that memory be enough.
It won't be. It may never be. Try.

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.
