McLellan’s “Grotto” works through the rich veins of memory toward an “obscure opening,” trying to make sense of the past: “You / left 23 years ago // and I’ve been at least // 23 people.” Like Blair, McLellan is invested in how sound and sense guide and collide. The light seen through the poem’s “obscure opening” transforms by the poem’s end when the speaker himself becomes “alight.” The self becomes the thing that illuminates the dark corners of memory, exposing what it has become. — Kristin George Bagdanov
