Rick Mullin s Transom is a poet s Odyssey through the year 2016 set primarily in
the financial district of Manhattan. The poems are written in a 15-line sonnet
variant of Mullin's device, a form called the Third Sancerre. With views of the
city from the docks at Hoboken s Lackawanna Terminal, from the top deck of the
Ferry Stevens, and from the city s oldest streets there are a few excursions to
such places as Lake Charles, LA; Ithaca, NY; Cape May, NJ; and Cologne,Germany
Transom logs the portents, "public and personal" of a transitional year.
