"we, the living, collect the dead. / Fallen autumn leaves, crushed flowers between / the pages of books, photographs of moments / that can never be fully recovered or even / remembered" What have you forgotten and what have you lost? The Little Yellow House investigates recollection - searching for people and the objects that bind them to memory - to uncover the story or the small moment between people and things. Heather Simeney MacLeod explores masterpieces, biblical stories, scientific theories, notions of reincarnation, and engages them with the plain, the lucid, and yet vibrant characters that resound with significance and vigor. Her verse reveals the secrets we have always known but somehow misplaced, whispering, "And we waste, we squander / we misplace, we misremember, and we forget." Poised between incident and memory, MacLeod's poetry considers the stillness between reflection and forgetting. A spirited and remarkable collection, The Little Yellow House joins together everyday and extraordinary occasions to suggest that we remember and misremember more than we suppose.
