Performing and teaching at Abington Friends School in Jenkintown, PA!
Sarah had a wonderful time working and playing with students at the Abington Friends School. What an absolutely beautiful school building, full of delightful students and staff. Thank you to everyone who participated in the workshop, and thank you to the faculty who helped organize and facilitate the visit!
Don’t Apologize I met Abby M. at my show at Carnegie Mellon University. She shared this beautiful drawing that she had done of a line from B. Thanks, Abby!

“Part poet, part performer, part storyteller, and full comedian, Kay and her ability to bring life to words earned a standing ovation from enthralled students.”
Today I got an email from a student in Germany who created this lovely embroidery of a line from “Worst Poetry.” Click the photos below to go to Julia H.’s website!
Best and Worst
Today Michael H. sent me this:
“When my favorite author, Jonathan Carroll, posted this line from your poem, “An Origin Story,” as his status on 16 July, it spoke to me and to the feelings I have for the woman I love, who left me at the end of April after eight years together. I will never forget her. On the last day of July, I went into Scapegoat Tattoo in Portland, OR and made that vow permanent…”
I think this is the first time someone’s ever gotten a tattoo from a line of “An Origin Story.” In the actual poem we’re speaking specifically about platonic love, but this is such a beautiful (and heartbreaking) story that Michael shared in connection with it. I’m always amazed with the way people make poetry their own. (Plus, I love that our quote gets to hang out right below John Lennon!) Thanks for sharing, Michael.

Performing and teaching at Hathaway Brown School in Shaker Heights, OH!
Sarah spent some wonderful quality time with 20 amazing young women: writing, playing, and collaborating. She was so impressed with how brave and smart they are and was immensely proud of the work they created and the risks they were willing to take. Thanks to Scott Parsons for putting together such a wonderful event, and to the lovely ladies who participated.
Moon Type Technically, this line isn’t mine. It’s from a children’s rhyme that I used to say when I was a kid. But for my poem “Astronaut” I made up a melody for it and altered the words a little. Roxanne Pasibe penned this beautiful text version of it for Behance. You can see the original source here.
