For many years now I have enjoyed and admired the poetry of Lowell Jaeger. It reminds us gently, but with a moral and humane undercurrent, to put by all this/important nonsense and appreciate the small details of our lives, to see them transformed as he does. Lowell Jaeger writes with a craft, clarity, and subtle intensity that has my battered earth/singing in tongues. -- Christopher Buckley poet, author of Back Room at the Philosopher s Club -- Lowell Jaeger does justice to the images, sounds, and memories of the everyday. The past and the present are recorded with his masterful, but subtle, use of language that accurately captures the magic inherent in every living moment; the holding of a girl s hand in the eighth grade, the impromptu observation of a job-related performance evaluation, or a student running into his professor on the same day he ditched his class. Jaeger s interactions in this world are interwoven with the mundane and the mystical, and his poems remind us of the beauty and wonder that awaits us when we pay attention. -- Richard Vargas poet, author of Guernica, Revisited and publisher of The Más Tequila Review
