    In We Were Once Here, Michael McFee continues to write inventive appreciations of often-overlooked subjects, particularly the people and language of his native Appalachia.
    This new collection contains thoughtful and playful celebrations of such things as snoring, a wall telephone from the 1960s, yardsticks, the Sunday newspaper, and Fats Waller. It also extends the poet s characteristic lyric keenness into longer work, including a twenty-one-part centerpiece elegy for his niece.
    The book concludes with, and is framed by, poems that explore the bittersweet enduring joys of here.
