No Matter the Wreckage was the story of Sarah Kay’s life; it was so specific to her own experience that there were many things that I could not relate to and few that I could. The poem that I enjoyed the most was “Dragons,” this one was about how similar the poet is to her father (in regard to temperament), which I could relate to. An excerpt from the poem:
“The silent anger too. They are capable of keeping the engine humming, the deep vibration of fury warm underneath. Me–I was not born with enough fuel. My anger often melts into sadness.”
Overall the poetry collection was enjoyable, but it was missing something for me.
