Some brief overview of this book

William Aarnes keeps finding the little seed words inside larger words—"the get in vegetables", "the real in cereal"—just as his poems find the meaningful kernels inside the daily goings on of our lives. His poems are school-yard savvy and know the difference between "brains and smarts".—Michael Chitwood, author of Spill and Poor-Mouth Jubilee As the title suggests, there i William Aarnes keeps finding the little seed words inside larger words—"the get in vegetables", "the real in cereal"—just as his poems find the meaningful kernels inside the daily goings on of our lives. His poems are school-yard savvy and know the difference between "brains and smarts".—Michael Chitwood, author of Spill and Poor-Mouth Jubilee As the title suggests, there is plenty of wit and wordplay in this excellent collection, but there is plenty of heart as well.

Bill Aarnes bears witness to the marvelous within everyday experience—driving home with a daughter and wife from a restaurant, standing on an airport conveyor belt, observing frost on a windshield. Yet such insights are often tempered by a sense of life's fleetingness. Other poems, some of childhood or of a less overtly biographical nature, show his range and achieve for this book what Aarnes himself imagines as an earthly paradise: "the wish / that a steadying of focus / could stop the present from hurrying / the coming moment into the past".—Ron Rash, author of Raising the Dead and Above the Waterfall Like Emily Dickinson, William Aarnes not only prefers the truth told "slant" but sees it so to begin with.

My response to a first reading of this collection was to start again at the beginning to make sure I had seen it all "right". I suspect many readers will react to Aarne's work with the same rapt, baffled eagerness.—Rhina P. Espaillat, author of Where Horizons Go and Her Place in These Designs
