From the publisher

Astute, precise, and unsettlingly calm, Accessioning is an index of lives encased in museum glass, and then brought to life. Through poems about 'fossilised fruit seeds' and the sofa where Emily Bronte died, Wetton questions how we curate the lives of those living and dead, in a pamphlet about looking, processing, and memorialising. Whether considering preserved wedding-cakes, a non-existent art exhibition or a human scream, these poems speak to the impossibility of containment and question our ability to map and categorise. This is a pamphlet of poems about the stories that we tell ourselves, the memories that we construct, and the ways that we value and devalue people, animals and objects alike.
