Two-ish days ago, I got an extremely kind anonymous message that made my day. I can’t reply to said message because it was anonymous, but — thank you, whoever you are! I really appreciated it!


Whistle for the Choir — The Fratellis

"You may want something ‘practical,’ so I’ll say this: poetry and science are kin; they share a series of principal labors. Those are 1.) observation and attention 2.) reflection and memory 3.) description 4.) imagination 5.) re-seeing and discovery. Both disciplines cultivate curiosity and interrogation.

Moreover, both disciplines are highly hospitable to strangeness and surprise. We don’t acknowledge this enough in science. We aren’t taught to enjoy this enough in poetry.

We don’t have to do much to make poetry “more relevant.” We just have to let science and poetry grow and change as they do. We just have to give them enough space and support to work in solitude but talk together too."

Take Me to Church — Hozier

(Also “To Be Alone” and “Cherry Wine,” in that order).


Closing Time — Semisonic

Closing time / open all the doors and let you out into the world / Closing time / Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl / Closing time / One last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer / Closing time / You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here


Classic mistake, C.J.
