Aaron Simon: Rain Check Poems   



Throughout these subtle yet seductive poems, materiality—both grand and ordinary—opens a route of return, the oceanic fullness one feels while 'waiting for the kettle to whistle.' Aaron Simon's poetry whispers to me of what it means to be alive, really alive."—Dodie Bellamy
