The Colour of Extinction

S.C. Flynn



Publication date: 9 October 2024

ISBN: 9781804471180




Under a sky the colour of extinction
you choose your own conclusion.
The Earth might have already done so…
and ten thousand years of civilisation
will shrink to an unrepeated moment.

The Colour of Extinction is a collection for our times: taking all of nature into its focus, these carefully crafted lines leave the reader mulling over our interaction with – and overuse of – the natural world.

Split into four strands, focusing on the climate crisis, birds, Australia and the melting polar caps, The Colour of Extinction forces us to confront the possible futures of the planet that we are destroying yet are so reliant on.
