Thought provoking and charming

Sarah kay never ceases to amaxe me, her spoken word poetry is one that i rarely see outside her and phil kaye's work. while most spoken word poets seek to shock with tales of violence, rape, politics, and mental disorder she manages to speak to one about the cycle of life that she first discocered at a public pool, or the way her teacher taught her how to listen to children like the future leaders they will be. sarah kay manages to make a city into a love poem without once ever having to try to shock her readers and leave them with many questions and reflections on themselves threw her words.

Sarah Kay is the reason I am still a poet. she awoke the sleeping beast and I have not been able to write it back to sleep yet. This book is all of her best poetry, and I absolutely recommend it.

The Perfect Words for Everything You’ve Ever Felt

I cannot thank one of my office book club buddies enough for picking this little gem. In a word, it’s therapeutic. Sarah masterfully revives memories of experiences that we all had, but don’t quite remember how they made us feel. It’s not just love and loss, but your first sighting of a jellyfish. The sound of your favorite teacher’s voice. The first time you saw one of your parents cry. Combined with a performance that is the perfect mix warmth, wonder, and wisdom, her words capture the magic in even the most mundane moments of her life and make you realize how much magic you’ve overlooked in your own.

Sarah Kay does it right!

"Love is finding the ocean. After spending years puddle-jumping". You can tell that each word is an earnest expression of the poets' feelings. Truly masterful. Keep it up!

Great!!!

I've definitely been a fan of Sarah Kay for several years now and have always loved her poetry. Listening to her speak is always very soothing and I'm glad to have purchased this audiobook. While I do enjoy her live performances, I didn't like how it broke up the studio recordings of her poetry. Overall, it was still pretty fantastic!!
