Graham Smith is an ancient rhymer whose history is shrouded in the mists of time. He may have moved to Long Beach under the cover of a marine layer. Allegedly a former lawyer, he has an affinity for brief poetry. He and his stout companions have been known to frequent coastal taverns, where he sometimes writes three line poems on bar napkins. His work can be found in the anthologies Cadence Collective: Year One and Year Two, and in Gutters & Alleyways: Perspectives on Poverty and Struggle. Find more at napkinsinashoebox.com.
His chapbook, bar napkins for beginners, is available with illustrations by Fernando Gallegos in full-color from Sadie Girl Press.
