About the Book
A collection of poems from 1998-2008.
This is a cheap version of the poems and photos edition: “Let's get the words right...”. So for added value, I included in this edition the Appendices: two prefaces I wrote for some previous books. Plus, I have kept all the dedications.

He still refuses to study photography formally, but is open to constructive feedback and tips. Lives in Glasgow since 1993. POETRY: Menelas was born in Greece in 1974, he moved to Glasgow when he was 19 to study. He wrote his first poem in English in 1998.
