Girl Boss Extraordinaire: Rupi Kaur

By Posted on 3 Comments 1 min read 60 views

Rupi Kaur is shaking the world of poetry. Although she might not be for everyone, she doesn’t claim or try to be – I love that. Whether you enjoy her poems or not, you’ve got to admit you’d never read anything like it before. Like a breath of fresh air, her art combines visuals and rhythm in a simplicity that rejuvenates our minds.

outlook – milk and honey

Ever since reading milk and honey, I was personally blown away by the amount of wisdom and magic in such a tiny poetry book. By the time I reached the last page, I was in love with Rupi’s writing style, life outlook, and strength. And couldn’t wait for more of her poems.

At just 21, Kaur has already published three poetry books that use repetition, consonance, and alliteration to stunning effect. She understands on a visceral level something elegant about the shapes of letters, making our ubiquitous Times New Roman font surprising again by playing with its roundness, its potential for contrast. It is no surprise that each of her books has earned New York Times Bestseller notoriety.

So, it is with overwhelming admiration for her genius that I share some of my favorite poems of hers with you readers today. Enjoy!

I know, right? I want more too.

Thanks, Rupi,
