The Fire gap is a snake-poem with two tails, two alternative endings. It is produced as a poster-book to a design by Michael Caine. The poem snakes out of its cover and down the page in an intriguing, serpentine design. Harrison reflects on the fate of a rattlesnake crossing a fire-gap cut through the trees. Against a background of nuclear threat, his title comes to mean both the space left to prevent fires from spreading and the time we might have between now and extinction. -- Publisher.
