It is very cool that this 10 year old thread has come back again, I hope to one day read one of Steve's poems.
I have a copy of Steve Smith's God's Kaleidoscope that my mother gave me more than 40 years ago. It was a copy he signed and in which he wrote a dedication to my mother. She was his private duty nurse at Montreal's Jewish General Hospital in the course of his cancer - his amputation (hence the line: "One foot in the grave, and I am my own remains"), and later when the cancer returned. He died in his twenties I believe. I have read the book many times over the years. A few of the poems are very dear to me.
