Poetry Spotlight: Sarah Kay

Hello Poetteers,


In this series I'd like to highlight my favorite poets.

Sarah Kay is a poet and teacher of spoken word. She has her well known poem, B, published in an illustrated book. She has a new book coming out of her poem, The Type, with the same title. You can check out a full collection of poems in her book, No Matter The Wreckage. She is also the founder of Project VOICE.

My Favorite Poems From Her:

If I Were To Have A Daughter - it's like a letter to me. I love it!

Mrs. Ribeiro - a poem of a wonderful person.

Montauk - a poem that transports me. My favorite part is how it ends.

Toothbrush to a Bicycle Tire - a poem between two inanimate objects. It's funny yet touching.

Hands - a beautiful poem to appreciate something we take for granted.

Forest Fires - a touching poem I can relate to.

Bonus:

When Love Arrives - by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye

An Origin Story - by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye
