Abstract

Chana Bloch The cave of the mind is closed to the general public. There’s a copy down the road which is said to resemble the original, but here in the inner darkness whatever I saved is visible when I close my eyes. I painted the animals before I could name them, bison, stag, aurochs, ibex, spitting pigment against the wall. I watched them move in the quivering shadows. My chief joy was to make the bison leap. NOTE The poem “Secrets of My Retina” was found in Chana Bloch’s papers after her passing. It is published here for the first time, with the generous permission of her sons, Benjamin and Jonathan Bloch. Herewith ends the work in honor of Chana Bloch Shofar 36.2 (2018): 79
