Andersens image-studded lyrics about work, love, family and class struggle create a vivid narrative that traces the concerns and aspirations of young people facing the challenges of daily life in a turbulent century. These are clear, direct poems that take us from mountaintops to local cafes, from lumberyards to town sidewalks, and range in theme from the impact of racism to the consolation of nature.Postcard from Chimney PondClimbed the talus around the pond last night-so many pebblesaround a puddle from the views of Baxter Peak, but down herechunks of granite as big as the small house I grew up in, alljumbled, jutting out of cold, clear water and piled up towardsthe stars. Silent lightning split the sky far north. Scrambledas far up the rock throat as I safely could and then some.Slept beneath the cliffs. Had a dream of you so real thatfor a long time after waking up, it felt good to have seen you again.
