Matthew Leavitt Brown worries forth a document that explores the intersection of love, loss, and the nonlinear nature of memory with prose, poetry, and texts which could be considered both and neither. An excerpt:

Negley, Kathryn
Grace –
Age 33 of
Randolph co., IL, died
March 30, 2012 after a two
year battle with breast
cancer. She was the
daughter of Bill and Mary
Greene. She was the first
warm wind in April.
She was the sun cresting
the east field hill, the blue
light below the glacier.
She is survived by her brothers
and her sisters. She is survived
by the fir forests of the north,
by the light broken through
high windows, by the two young
appaloosas down the lane
who bow and paw the loose
earth each time you pass,
slowly. She is survived by
her husband. She is left
in the bag of green apples
she kept on the back floorboard
of her car so she could pause
and say hello when she saw
them by the roadside.
The one she called Dot after
the gold flecks running down
its legs. The one she called
Buddy by instinct. She is
the thing you miss when
you are not alone.
