In Kate Jordahl’s and Don Drake’s sixth and final One Poem Series book, End, Don directly enters the dialog with the book's eponymous Poem.
Don's poem draws imagery from the natural world as did the other 5 in the series. But not nature as we normally experience it; this is nature as revealed by science, and on a cosmic scale. And it returns to the theme of mortality.
But the poem and the book are not simple about endings. ‘End’ is but another marker on the crooked road. This is a book about our choice of beliefs and how we might discover our personal answer to the question of book 5.
Kate’s images in this dialog evoke the feeling of ancient monuments and artifacts; a sense of history and lost civilizations. And for the two collaborators, the One Poem series has become an artifact of the past as they consider the possibilities for their next project and another unmarked path.
