Minded Places: The Latest Book by Rodney Nelson

Minded Places, a book of poems by North Dakota poet Rodney Nelson, was recently released through Middle Island Press. Nelson offers an incredibly lucid experience through his poems, much like stepping into a dream at times – another place, another time; or simply living the experience of another (in this case, Rodney Nelson). Beautiful work as always; we’re glad to see it in print.


at night she had put
the remnant fire
to bed in ash in
the kitchen range and
at seven it came
to flame again

no doubt the water
would boil when the clock
said minutes later
without a doubt and
it would be ready
for the drip pot

light was appearing
at the north window
with certainty and
she did not look to
turn the oil lamp down
which had not moved

(Minded Places is available at Amazon.)
