“Flowers of the Night” (published by iUniverse) is the newest collection of poetry by Gordon Evans. It is his second book of poetry, following “A Pawn in a Chess Game.”

Like “A Pawn in a Chess Game,” the poems in “Flowers of the Night” are written in a prose style that leaves room for reader interpretation but is concrete enough to display non-abstract ideas.

An excerpt from “Been There, Done That”:

“Of myself I had thought of a suicidal death
To be a death of cleansing sometime ago
Being killed never looks good
Life just goes on
Life is a lot of present tense

The blood on the streets in the news once turned me on
At the thought of it wishing it happened to me, you see”

It is the honest hope of the author that the reader finds this poetry valuable in its intent to provide new insight into old concepts like dreams and the love.
