My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have watched Sarah Kay’s spoken word poetry live when she and Phil Kaye performed in the Philippines. She is one of the inspiring poets I met. Her poems are exquisite yet simple, so it’s relatable while deeply felt.
“B” was performed at the TED 2011 Conference. In this platform of written texts, the words are to be felt just the same. The words are emphasized through breaking off the lines and the subtle illustrations of Sophia Janowitz. What I like about the poem is that it is not trying to please its readers, it simply does. The emotions are visible as the poem is real.
I got an earc from Hachette Books through NetGalley for an honest review.
