White Campion attempts a libretto to the music of aphasia and forgetting. The disappearance of memory can break hearts, but may open into something wonderful, on the clean far side of memory. Poems explore the idea that identity proves to be simply flashpoints of intervals, and at the end of all, humanity hopes to find a hymn to oblivion.
