56 pages


From dreams to memories to the realities of life in the border cities of Windsor and Detroit, Smith’s collection of poems brings us through the wonder and the questionable in our everyday lives. Hers is a strong voice that emerges from the places familiar to those who inhabit the region these poems call home. From the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera to New Year’s Eve spent at the infamous Coach and Horses dive bar to the seeming simplicity of breakfast with her father, these poems connect on a profoundly personal level.
