    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. Phil Kaye knows how to use euphemisms.

It is phenomenal in its honest and being the master story-teller that Phil is, he navigates laughter, delight and despondence with such elegance, this book was worth the wait.

    Phil's poems are genuine and raw with emotion. I cried and laughed reading this book.

    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 has the uncanny ability to make small things things feel so grand and so human and emotional, which is a joy to read and listen to. Some of my favourite poems were repetition, teeth, before the internet, and canyon just to name a few. Love this book totally inspired me.

    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.

    //3.5// 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.
