Memory images presented in a format inspired by an altered photograph album. Bill Kelly: "Conceived the way a duck hunter or ice fisherman would carve, then use, a decoy, these ideas are lures into a reflective state, where both the reader and the writer are tricked into a belief that what is felt is the truth...or nearly so."
