    Susan's work is filled with honesty and courage. She has an uncanny knack for precisely matching language and form to the content of each poem.

    She has a sharp eye for unpopular truths we tend to ignore when we aim for what's been known and accepted. her boldness and frankness without being obnoxious are marks of a true contemporary talent. she shares the words and thoughts that satisfy but she seem to own the souls of the stories...her works, intriguing. a pure wit, sensitivity to life, a strong connection to readers, and a true talent-a combination that explains why she’s soooooo good.

    You rock,
    you eighties child you.

    Susan I really adore your poetry.It's evocative, and will be truthful years and years from now. And thats the mark of a true poet. And I know this isnt much coming form me but I think you have a supreme amount of talent.

    Talent! ! Talent! ! Talent! !

    Sus,

    What can I say? You are certainly one of the most promising young poets I have ever had the pleasure of reading. You delve into poetry like a fat drunk man into a bathroom: unafraid and full of purpose. You continue to amaze me with your wit, imagery, and humanness. I can hardly wait to see what is next.

    Be good to you,

    Aaron

    The raw-ness, the girtty depth, the Susan jane Goldner 1984 makes Susan jane Goldner's poetry.

    Her poetry is universal and personal at the same time, something that only a remote selection of poets can achieve.

    Keep writing Susan jane Goldner. and yes, I like repeating your name..

    After reading much of your poems, I think I can comfortably say that you portray a side of human nature that is not normally sailed into - or it is, and we just brush it away from our mind's eye. But you display it in portraits, usually so succinct (appropriately, I might add) but potent, that embed themselves into the reader's (at least my) mind. Finding those little odd trinkets in everyday life makes the humanity in your poems quite puissant and unlike alot of the stuff I have read.

  • Will Barber (7/8/2006 12:12:00 AM)

    The Poems of Susan Jane Goldner explore the Heights and depthS of huMan experience. Humor is a characteristic device - second only to beauty - of her techniques.

  • Joy Vanderhelm (6/10/2006 11:15:00 AM)

    I wish I had more space and more time and I would display properly the array of emotion I come in contact with while reading your poetry. Absolutely brilliant in its depth and language. Your use of color and form and tone are amazing. The knowledge you posssess and the experiences you've had make for the best poetry I've read in a long while. I think that given a few more years we'll be looking at yet another success story in the world of published poetry. The best and the worst of this world as well as everyday happenings (which in my opinion make the greatest poems) are all reflected in your poetry. Take care and keep that pen full!

Best Poem of s./j. goldner

21 And Rising

my words fill in blank memories,
while images of you stay fresh like ocean air—
weaved in my soul like the braids of my hair.

an addict of wrong addictions,
but so sweet is the taste
until you discover—life comes un-laced.

twenty-one and rising:
you were the only love I didn't borrow
kiss me now for I know of no tomorrow.

lost souls are but shooting stars;
I wish I may, I wish I might—
with two black freckles turned to the night.

two decades plus one
and to be a lover was my only care,
when in fact, it's the impossible I ...

Postscript

You cannot make people see evil
even if you blaze it from a 10,000
volt football stage.

It’s not as defined as in the books
we read growing up. It’s hidden,
out of view—operates behind closed doors

After gaining the approval in the public
Eye. And the truthful ones are silenced.
