Publisher:  erbacce-press ISBN-10:  10906588519 Type: 


Copyright:  Sept 2009 ISBN-13:  9781906588519

A booklet as reward for coming one of 3 runners-up, out of 1,250 entries, in a competition. The poems all deal with the prospect of death. Overall effect is quite invigorating.

Barnes &

Every poem - by title in alphabetical order - is accompanied by a quote from another author - alphabetically - and so generating random juxtapositions many of which are quite synergetic. And sometimes funny. 


Every Day Begins Bravely

When daybreak's cold light
lies behind trees and hedges
behind houses
and roadside verges are dewsilvered
a wren flies up to a thin ridge of roof
or topmost cable
and in his hard little voice
shouts his defiance at all predators
calls alive
the colours of the day

floating above the gravity of sleep
I tell myself to get up
try again

"... moved like a young man, tall, extremely handsome / the joy of being immortal in his eyes." C. P. Cavafy

Professional Reviews

Alan Corkish
I never try to hide my unqualified admiration for sam Smith's written work and for me, personally, this is the best of him; irreverent, intelligent, provocative and unpretentious he provokes me to smile, to debate and to appreciate his stubborn honesty... words for Smith are a functional yet beautiful vehicle, sort of Rolls Royce convertibles with ladders and bags of cement strapped across the gold-plated body-work...jump on board and enoy the ride
