Paul Nelson's new collection, Burning the Furniture, moves through a startling array of things seen while arranging the experience of them into a lucid privacy of mind that is the feature of first memory, what quiets the human heart -- these are wonderful and beautiful poems. -- Norman Dubie, author of The Volcano
