2014 DELAWARE VALLEY JUDGE

Roy SmithROY SMITH
'I am rather interested in poetry and the coinage of words bartered across the membrane of consciousness. My influences are many and diverse - they come to me as a smiling overgrown child on a too small bicycle holding a lit stick of dynamite - daring me to cut the fuse with a scissor, or let it go off.'

A Bucks County Pa. native Roy has been published in Apiary, River Poets Journal, Chapbook-Selected Poems, Live at Karla's-An Anthology of Popular Performance Poetry, Phantom Billstickers Poem Posters in New Zealand and Bucks County Poet Laureate 2000 Second Runner-up. Roy's multi-cultural background- Japanese-American, his childhood, time spent in the U.S. military and overall insights to the world inform his writing. He currently resides in New Hope Pa. More of his work can be found on Facebook at Roy 'Word' Smith

 

POEMS:
