    This is the 3rd of 4 nominees for the 2013 Minnesota Book Award in Poetry that I ve read I enjoyed this book of poetry as the visuals the author creates with his poems are quite vivid One of my favorite poems in the book is Highway One, with the wonderful description of the road Between Finland and Isabella is the straightest road in the state And the roughest Having traveled that stretch of road, I can attest to its straightness AND roughness The second section of the book, A Good Sauna Always Burns Down , the advice given by the old man to the young man, set to poetry, is terrific You feel the progress through the short warm summer months from removing the old sauna and building the new Great book of poetry

    I don t know anything about Jim Johnson except that he s from northern MN , but from his poems he seems strikes me as a man who has lived a long life filled with hard work and simple pleasures If, in fact, he s not actually that old, then he has an old soul, and I mean that as a compliment These poems feel direct and serious than Barton Sutter s at times, they just seem like what someone would say if you knocked on his door and asked him a straightforward question The I read them, though, the quietly observant I realize they are, and the I like them.

    the sun shining through the ankles of the pines 22 the canoe moved through the still waters like a smirk 22 see how those popple trees blown down on top of the other, their roots exposed like hands holding hands 43
