YELLOW SOCKS


Poetry by:
HAYDÉE TOUITOU

Featuring Photography by: 
Marie Déhé


YELLOW SOCKS

Haydée hails from Paris, France where she is co-founder of the publication The Skirt Chronicles, a globally distributed printed journal that grants the same importance to photography as it does to the written word. In March of 2020, Haydée published a book of poems titled We Have Been Meaning To , which also features photography by Marie Déhé. In a continuation of that creative partnership, Haydée offers us two poems paired with a photograph by Marie.




Listen:



1. A Pair Of New, Yellow, Socks Carefully Folded


What does it mean
For a pair of socks
To be
Carefully
Folded

I never know how to do that
How to fold my socks
I usually make some sort of ball
Out of them both

Maybe if they were yellow
And new
I would
Fold them
Carefully













2. Folding A Pair Of New, Yellow, Socks


Take one single new, yellow, sock
The toe part is in your left hand
The other part in your right hand

First you fold carefully
That single new, yellow, sock
Take the second sock
And repeat

This technique works
Whether you start
With the right sock
Or the left

Bio:


Haydée Touitou began writing in 2014 when she started working for Apartamento magazine. First conducting interviews with cinema personalities like Wes Anderson, she quickly started experimenting with essays and non-fiction in general. Over the following years, she developped her portfolio in fiction and poetry by contributing regularly to publications like Kennedy magazine, Hearts magazine or hot hot hot. She is today one of the contributing editors of Apartamento magazine.

In 2017, Haydée co-founded The Skirt Chronicles, a publication founded by women which reflects a feminine voice yet does not exclude anyone from the conversation. As co-editor-in-chief, Haydée’s missions are to gather groundbreaking writers as well as taking care of the distribution of the magazine. In 2018, The Skirt Chronicles was awarded the Editor of the Year prize at the Stack Awards in London.
