Memory is a process...

(Reading Joseph Roach's Cities of the Dead; Post 9/11 reflection, and other modes of "seeking" the individual within the collective)

memory, a process that depends on forgetting
labyrinths within our conscious mind(s)
are echoes of unconscious traces

my other selves speak to me
of memories buried deeply inside
re-membering is re-cognizing

conflict of selves
coming to terms
with oneself
