From The Ochre World - #24, Jon Davis Jan 1994

From The Ochre World - #24, Jon Davis

The Prose Poem: An International Journal

Note: The Ochre World is a 45 page poem, formed at the junction of a dream, a news event, and some photographs of the Lascaux cave paintings. Some of the poem's sections can stand alone, others cannot, but all are enriched by a scheme of recurring imagery and an evolving "argument." Although unnumbered in the full manuscript, I have given these sections—which occur late in the poem—numbers, so the reader can feel the duration, at least, of the absent sections.
