I guess right now the poem I am thinking about the most is the poem Ghost Ship, a line from which inspired the title for this collection. But few hide under the bar of the famous Bowery Poetry Club in Manhattan's East Village absorbing the talents of New York's most exciting poets. Kay is also a successful educator, who co-directs Project VOICE (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression).

No Matter The Wreckage is a collection of poetry with the themes of love as well as random things out of the blue, including travel, cities and our surroundings. I also feel that the stories she was telling were very repetitive and didn't grab my attetion enough for me to want to continue reading, which was a shame.Founded by Kay in 2004, Project VOICE encourages people to use spoken word poetry as a tool for personal and world understanding, and a medium for vital expression.

I felt very detached from the author and the themes while reading the poems, and I felt that the free-form didn't help convey the message she was trying to get accross. This book is only 130 pages, so it's short to begin with, but I managed to tear through the entire book in less than 12 hours because I just kept wanting to read the next poem and read more of Kay's amazing words.I loved how her poems touched not only love, but awareness, longing, giving importance to other people, putting someone else's happiness before her own and how she made each poem entirely different from another. The poetry books I have read so far are either lackluster or bland in terms of writing, but this book completely changed my viewpoint on poetry. The great thing about Sarah Kay is that she not only manages to show you the sadness and rawness of reality, but also the joys in the little things. Maybe the next time you see love is twenty years after the divorce, love is older now, but just as beautiful as you remembered.

Her elegant words celebrate family bonds, young love, travel, and the echoes of history shaping our present. She has performed at events and venues like the Lincoln Center, the Tribeca Film Festival, and at the United Nations where she was a featured performer for the launch of the 2004 World Youth Report.Both fresh and wise, Kay’s poetry allows readers to join in on her journey of discovering herself and the world around her. I'm sad to say I didn't really enjoy this poetry collection, specially since everyone who's read this seems to love it. It seems like these poets sometimes just put a bunch of random stuff together, punctuate it with spaces and almost dare, challenge you to finally yell "What is this? My self-confidence can be measured out in teaspoons, mixed into my poetry, and it still always tastes funny in my mouth. I am proud of the conversation it is engaging with and grateful that I can share it with folks through this book.

She is perhaps best known for her talk at the 2011 TED conference, which garnered two standing ovations and has been seen over three million times online.

A lovely book of poems to take your time with or like me when you find yourself with a cup of tea in one hand this book should be in the other. Sarah Kay's spectacular poetry reached me so deeply that I've already passed the book on to my little sister a mere ten minutes after reading it, because I wanted to share the gift of these spectacular and empowering words with her. No Matter The Wreckage is a brilliant poetry collection that delves into Sarah Kay's past with poems that illuminate everything from her childhood, to her adulthood, to being born and raised in New York City.
