Extinction focuses on the destruction of the earth, extinction of all life and ends with a personal reflection on our mortality and the nature of love. The intention of this collection isn't to ruminate on the hopeless nature of the Earth and man's destruction of it but to remember and share that hope exists in many forms: by connecting with the everyday beauty of our Earth and through the comfort of our loved ones who bring joy to our daily lives.
Geza's poems confront our human ultimate concerns of Mother Earth, life, love, death, and the meaning of existence. There are the doomsday poems, an unmistakable wake-up call, if not already too late, and poems on the beauty of our cosmos along with the fleeting joys of love open to being husband, father, and grandfather. This book makes it clear where Geza is coming from, where he is going, why, and his wonderful, compact poems demonstrate what poetry is and ought to be.
