NPM: Sarah Kay’s If I Should Have a Daughter

“If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she’s gonna call me Point B. . .”

“Spoken word poetry is the art of performance poetry. . . it involves creating poetry that doesn’t want to sit on the paper. Something about it demands to be heard out loud or witnessed in person.”

    Spoken word poetry is one of my favorite ways to experience poetry. Thanks for reminding me to go out and listen to some more! Rives is one of my favorite spoken word poets.

  5. I didn’t get to listen to the whole talk, just the poem at the beginning, and wow, that was awesome! I don’t think I’ve ever spent time listening to spoken word poetry before. I hope you’ll be featuring more this month.

  6. She is great!!! Loved this! Thanks for sharing it.

    “Under-developed and over-excitable”: I love that image of her as a young freshman in school, discovering spoken word. I actually liked the last poem most, the idea of the “impossible connection”: quite inspiring. Thanks for posting this!
