A calendar is no simple reckoning of dates. Each of us carries our own calendar inside, our own anniversaries both lovely and brutal. A date, like scar tissue, might mark an otherwise anonymous Wednesday. A year arrives, turns, departs, and is replaced by another version of itself, layer upon layer as a life is lived, as memory settles like sediment over the days.

Now a new year is arriving, and for the fifth time we are making a calendar to mark this cultural decision of renewal. Inside these pages are voices and images that touch us with their beauty and truth, that sing. Though we experience the years as moving faster, a moment stays mysteriously elastic. These poems are moments that will expand to enrich and deepen the coming year of days. And we are grateful to be able to share them with you.

Our fifth annual limited-edition calendar features poems by Holly Anderson, Ari Banias, Chia-Lun Chang, Miri Gabriel, Julia Guez, Harmony Holiday, Amy Lawless, Ricky Maldonado, Sade Murphy, Maryam Parhizkar, Brandon Shimoda, Eleni Sikelianos, Nikki Wallschlaeger, and Rachael Wilson.
