Poetry
"This steady drip of memories through the years, this slow accretion"

Fleeting Memories is the first section of Memories, Dreams and Inner Voices, a trilogy documenting three “varieties of unconscious experience” that was published by Station Hill Press in 2012. The other two sections are Dreams of the 1990s (excerpt in Café Irreal #22 ) and Inner Voices Heard Before Sleep (in Argoist Online). A recording of the opening of Fleeting Memories is archived at WFMU.
