Transitional Objects

Unicorn Press
New and Featured Books, Poetry as Claire Millikin

Movies, haircuts, forests, backroads, pottery, photographs, jewelry, birds: the objects that make up and are discarded in the process of a life are the transient, mournfully held subjects of Transitional Objects. The book is bound as four booklets: Straight Line, Film, Fakes, and Vanishing Point, encouraging readers to experience the narrative of Transitional Objects as fluent and shifting. It is the objects, the places where a life is held and the places that a life holds, that create this haunting and spare poetry of vision and touch.
