“What is happening to our planet and its creatures it a question that should keep us all awake at night. I’ve responded to it here by writing a series of collaborate poems by talking to people who deal with this question everyday.”

He spoke to scientists and environmentalists and wrote a series of collaborative poems based on these conversations. He says,

“What emerged in the end was a swirl of voices. A story that has no single clear narrative line, but offers instead a succession of utterances linked by similar preoccupations.”
