Slip Slippage

Harryette Mullen. Recyclopedia: Trimmings, S*PeRM**K*T, and Muse & Drudge

At one point in Trimmings there is a set of pages with on the left a passage dealing with slips which culminates in Freudian ones and on the right is a passage that enacts slippage of a dreamwork if not Freudian sort.

[…] Without permission, slips out the door. a name adores a Freudian slip. Night moon star sun down gown. Night moan stir sin dawn gown.

Daybreak breaks the night via the slightest of vowel shifts.

And so for day 1658
