    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.

    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.

    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!

    Un libro que explora con belleza la infancia. Kaye lleva a sus lectores a compartir su pasado, hacerlos partícipes de ese pasado. Los abuelos del poeta son captados en apenas unos versos y con ellos es suficiente para admirar en toda su dimensión a esos seres humanos que con tanto amor son evocados en los poemas. El tiempo del despertar también está presente, el despertar del deseo, pero también el desengaño (como un despertar).

    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.

    Some free verse poetry is absolutely grand and breathtaking - think "The Wasteland," by T.S. Eliot. Then there's some modern free verse poetry that is so unbelievably terrible that you wonder how it could ever be published, let alone respected by any thinking person. How this collection of poems has such a high average rating is impossible for me to understand. What happened to poetry?

    Im biased because i love phil kaye since the moment i encounter this poet. This is one of the most beautiful book cover. He wrote beautifully about divorce, although it is ugly. I love it when ben made another appearance. I love it that some i dont understand, but thats the beauty of poetry. Will read this over and over, i am sure. Make another book, i will buy it. Love from Malaysia.

    This book proves that Kaye's words can be just as effective on paper as they are when spoken. He touches on similar themes of family, culture, and coming of age that Rupi Kaur does in her books. I encourage any poetry fan to purchase this collection. Poems that hit me the hardest: "Phantom Limb" and "Ferris Wheel"

    I am a huge Phil Kaye fan. I've seen him live twice and read his last book vigorously with a highlighter in hand. So as you can imagine, when this book was announced I was ecstatic. I set aside some time to really dive head first into this collection of work, and I wasn't disappointed. He has this way of storytelling that is so unique. Every poem he writes comes to live right off the pages. You are living in these moments of time with him and it almost feels like your time traveling through some I am a huge Phil Kaye fan.

Every poem he writes comes to live right off the pages. You are living in these moments of time with him and it almost feels like your time traveling through someone else's life. All these moments that may seem insignificant at first are really building to something so much bigger, creating this moment, creating this person. When I closed the book; when I returned back from my travels. I couldn't help being reflective on my own life. Looking closer into moments, I’d overlooked before. If you would have asked me before what the moments were that shaped me, I would have been able to pull out the few big moments that I’d deemed important, but after reading this book maybe there isn't any insignificant moments. Everything I am is built off of every moment I’ve lived, and if I looked close enough maybe there's even something I don't even know yet building there. I hope you take the time to read this book, or check out his spoken word, or even his ted talk. He's a wonderful storyteller and really has something special. This book will be one I remember and go back to for a long time. I can't wait to see what he does next.

    //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.

    I'm so glad I savored this book. I enjoyed every page, and knew I would since I'm a big fan of Kaye's work. This was one of my favorite reads for the year. The heartwarming stories and sometimes sorrowful ones are both equally amazing.

    I stumbled on Phil Kaye several years ago while in college and have been a fan since. This collection is wonderful, thought-provoking, and honest.

    Loved this book! Definitely a lot of good feels for those of the multicultural persuasion and for millennials struggling with the weird world we live in (especially with the many pros and cons of the Internet!) This is one I'm sure to show to many of my friends.

    The connecting concepts throughout this book was fantastic. Some poems were noticeably stronger than others.

    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.

    Phil’s poems feel like a long talk with a very wise, yet hopeful friend. They feel like those late night conversations I had on my dorm room floor with my best friends where we would laugh and cry and talk about our childhood and somehow manage to fall asleep feeling optimistic about the future. He is an excellent poet. His subject matter here is engaging and diverse. I have long been enchanted by his grasp and use of the written word, and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for the world Phil’s poems feel like a long talk with a very wise, yet hopeful friend.
