Object permanence / David B. Goldstein.

Author: Goldstein, David B., 1972-
Description: "The poems of Object Permanence communicate the secret intensity of a world peopled by objects. The author and the figures--burning dolls, prophesying heads, terrified porcelain roosters, pontificating door-knockers--are crammed into a house overlooking Sintra, Portugal. An exposé of the domestic chambers of human experience, these poems find terror and familiarity reside together."--Publisher's website (viewed 08/28/2015).
