Night Court leaves us hungry for more of the poet’s open, probing, leaping intelligence, her “wild associations” and surprises in the unexpected “shivering” sweetness of a love story where “joy scrambles sadness.” We hear “the clatter of souls entering bodies” and experience “spring’s lizard stealth” as sadness, longing and reluctance are transformed by breath-stopping bea ...more

JAMES BALDWIN ONCE SAID “THE ROLE OF THE ARTIST IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ROLE OF THE LOVER. IF I LOVE YOU, I HAVE TO MAKE YOU CONSCIOUS OF THE THINGS YOU DO NOT SEE.” DOES ERICA GOSS LOVE YOU?

Erica Goss in her poem collection “Night Court” takes on many different subjects that definitely are close to our heart and mind in everyday life. The variety of issues discussed in Goss’ poems, for I believe poetry not only inspire the reader but opens a dialogue with him, is so extensive it takes some t

Each time I review a book of poetry, I think to myself, "I need to read more poetry." Poetry centers me. As I'm reading each poem, I feel a calmness come over me. There are moments of joy, and too, moments of sadness. This holds true in this lovely volume of poetry titled Night Court. As I was reading, I felt each poem describing some aspect of life. Very relatable and, at times, poignant. I found the poems about parents the most compelling and touching. I've been having a difficult time of late ...more

Fantastic collection of poems! There is such a variety and each one so deep, full of thought and feeling. When I was reading these I was not only struck by the poem as a whole but by each line itself.
For example - In the poem Night Court, these lines have so much meaning (to me) very thought provoking -
"I put my tragedies on the witness stand"
"They have sworn to tell the truth and nothing else"
And in the poem Cover -
"You take stock of your life,
how trash laps its edges..."
"Loose your anchors on

Poetry has the power to touch a chord in your heart and leave it strumming for the rest of your life. This collection of poems is not your usual happy romcom kinds. It has the power to scare you, to show you your inner self.

The themes around which powms are penned are serious in nature. To be honest, I felt that each poem was a topic being discussed during a session in a night court. What I liked about the poems was the fact that there had a subtle hint of reality. Every reader could associate w

The evidence will show...

Night Court was an impressive book of poems yet for me who’s still learning the interpreting skills of poetry I did find some of the poems obscure. Additionally, the author used little reservation regarding the different types of concepts that constructed her poems. Therefore, you will run the gamut of emotions as you read through this book of poems, some are deep in meaning others bold. The book is broken up into five sectio
