"Dog Heart" Isn't "Speak, Memory," But It Still Has Some Good Licks

Being a memoir it makes sense that "memory" would pop up a lot.  From one of the many sections called MEMORY:

Like starlings, memory devours everything. We live, we move forward as if travelling through a landscape, continually sharpening the eye--on the cusp of passing into oblivion--and immediately, constantly, inexorably the experience topples into the domain of memory. One instantly, constantly, inexorably turns to past tense. I am my own defecation.
