She began performing poetry at the Bowery Poetry Club in the East Village at the age of 14, joining their Slam Team in 2006. the Literary Bohemian, DecomP, Damselfly Press, Union Station Magazine, Foundling Review, the Huffington Post, CNN. On the other hand I figured that the accessibility of the poems would make for far more enjoyable reading than most poetry books. However, plenty of times, a poem is not necessarily about my family, but my family is serving as the setting for the actual subject of the poem. She is perhaps best known for her talk at the 2011 TED conference, which garnered two standing ovations and has been seen over three million times online.

Another being Hand-Me-Downs, shows how we can inherit traits from our family, and it may not always necessarily be a beautiful thing. Kay is also a successful educator, who co-directs Project VOICE (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression). Sarah Kay is primarily a spoken word poet, so the writing style embraces the sound and rhythm of her poetry, not simply the structural aspects.But I wrote the poem after a pattern had developed in my life that resulted in me having “near-misses” with great tragedies. Only so many into space, before you forget that words are sometimes used for things other than filling emptiness. Maybe the next time you see love is twenty years after the divorce, love is older now, but just as beautiful as you remembered. No Matter The Wreckage is a brilliant poetry collection that delves into Sarah Kay's past with poems that illuminate everything from her childhood, to her adulthood, to being born and raised in New York City. And then again, you are brought to post-apartheid Cape Town where you can almost smell the rusty cage in which pigeons were housed.

Sarah Kay is definitely an astonishing poet and because she is under-appreciated in the book world, I feel that more should look into giving this book a read.I could feel and see everything in some of the poems so vividly and could even relate to some of them personally. Summary: Following the success of her breakout poem, "B," Sarah Kay releases her debut collection of poetry featuring work from the first decade of her career. On the whole they have been good with a few outstanding poems but I haven't been left feeling a sense of loss at the end or a sense of longing to read more, much more. I am proud of the conversation it is engaging with and grateful that I can share it with folks through this book. This collection's transformative helps readers to find a sanctuary of words that uplift your spirit and ignite imagination.

We build model ships in bottles, whispering life into the toothpicks and wire; we make plans and blueprints for the one we hope is coming. Regardless, nothing can prepare you for the poems you haven't read yet, and there are quite a few of them. When the weight gives, and all that extra rope comes hurtling towards you, how even though you've won, you still end up with muddy knees and burns on your hands? One minute you are in India tasting the sweetness of mangoes, the next you are in Hiroshima staring at the metaphorical rubble. I'm not actually much of a spoken word poetry fan, try as I might have over the years to become one.But few hide under the bar of the famous Bowery Poetry Club in Manhattan's East Village absorbing the talents of New York's most exciting poets. No Matter the Wreckage presents readers with new and beloved work that showcases Kay’s knack for celebrating family, love, travel, history, and unlikely love affairs between inanimate objects, among other curious topics.
