Kaye takes the reader on a journey from a complex but iridescent childhood, drawing them into adolescence, and finally on to adulthood. There are first kisses, lost friendships, hair blowing in the wind while driving t ...more

Phil Kaye knows how to use euphemisms. He just does it so effectively that you are caught up in the beauty of his poetry and do not realize how and when the poem hit you the hardest. I come from a broken home and Phil Kaye's utter honesty broke my heart. His book resonated with me on so many levels, and the guilt with which he writes about feeling all he felt, i have never come across that particular emotion, so vividly.

I had been waiting a long time for Phil's book to release and then arrive.

Almost as good as his spoken word performances.
Hadn't cried over my parents' divorce in a while so thanks I guess

I’m in love with spoken word poetry and Phil truly is one of the greats. Fist off the cover is gorgeous, second off the poetry was lovely. I know of Phils work mainly from his videos on button so It was really interesting to see some of his poetry was written out and what style it takes on the page and how that translates to being spoken aloud.

I really like how Phil often talks of his family history and how that shaped his life, that a very different theme than what most poets go for. Phil also

Raised in a California beach town by a Japanese mother and Jewish-American father, the author first fell in love with spoken word poetry at age 17. He has performed in hundreds of venues in fifteen countries. In 2015, Phil was invited to perform alongside His Holiness The Dalai Lama for the celebration of his 80th birthday. His work has been viewed online over 10 million times and featured in media outlets ranging from NPR to Al Jazeera America to Upworthy.com. I have been a big fan of his spoke ...more

Phil Kaye's collection re-emphasizes the importance of time, and the intricacies of healing that comes with time, is non-linear. His focus on divorce, relationships, race, history, mental health, body image, the present in our post 2016-election era, and family in his poetry is worth delving into.

His distinct voice is one that becomes easily captivating because of its honesty and humor. Child-like and adult simultaneously.

You'll enjoy it!

I was so sure I'd love this because I've always been in awe of how well he and Sara Kay can perform together and work together towards amazing progress in the world through their writing and artistry. But I was not prepared to laugh and weep without even knowing why - everything about this book was perfectly poised and stunningly penned. I love the honesty and history of each piece also. Highly recommend this to every new poet and to everyone willingly searching for themselves.

This is a good collection. Emotionally vulnerable, well thought-out premise.
Only reason it is not receiving a higher rating is because it feels like it could still benefit from editing, from finding what truly shines and removing other elements that may distract from those key moments.
Highlight? My Grandmother’s Ballroom and Teeth. Kaye is at his best when exploring his family.

This is the first collection I’ve read by Phil Kaye, and while he’s a talented poet, I’m not a huge fan of his style. I particularly loved “Unalienable”. 3 stars.
