y separately published work icon Poetry as Means of Dialogue in Court Spaces John Kinsella , Z1672800 2007 single work criticism 'I've always thought 'court talk' is poetic at its best, and that we should work collectively toward valuing it as poetry, as I will explain shortly.

To my mind, such a process helps make 'justice'. Lead by example rather than simply fix the problems: it's the recognition of the private within the public.' Source: John Kinsella
