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.

About the author (2003)

POLLEN MEMORY was written primarily during the summer of 1992. i wished to locate a form which would approach, and continue itself. it looked something like a square, but behaved more like a spinning wheel. This was my first book-length endeavour. I worked in part from notebooks. lines were pulled from pages, poems coaxed from lines--until a procession emerged. the small weight of the breath line, followed by the body, or the demi-weight of the poem. the work seemed to generate itself. returning to a passage i was met, as if expected.
