Selected Timelines: Past & Future by Holly Jensen takes us on a journey from billions of years in the past to billions of years in the future. We see glaciers melt, tribes form and dissolve, religions rise, civilisations fall, lifeforms flop from the ocean. This short pamphlet is just six pages long, but in those six pages a thousand lifetimes are outlined in spare and beautiful verse.
This pamphlet was distributed for free along with issue thirty-nine of Neon Literary Magazine.
