Poetry. "These poems in prose are instructions for (not interpretations of) dreams and, as such of intrinsic value. They take fully into account 'what is lost,' 'what cannot be told,' 'the missing object,' the 'no one to blame.' They ring true"-Keith Waldrop. "With a knowledge of what has come before, Laynie Brown charts the processes of natural phenomenon by means of a lyric tuned to the harmony of the spheres. POLLEN MEMORY marks the journey of a poet who listens to important things that most of us take for granted-it is both hypnotic and wise"-Lisa Jarnot.
