Description of the Book :
What happens when brain trauma, depression, and time steal away the parts of you that weren’t ready to be lost? Sometimes they resurface. Sometimes they resurface, but as mangled strings that bear no resemblance to the “you” that you remember. Sometimes, they are lost forever.
(re)memory explores the lines of life and death and memory and how they blur. Through extended metaphors and bending punctuation rules, (re)memory brings trauma, pain, and past to the surface in a way that is digestible. This collection of poems reveals hidden messages about how human beings internalize, process, and understand how they fit into their past, present, and future. To forget is to be disfigured. To remember is to be lost. To understand that one is not simplified to what is beyond their control is to be healed.
