What Kind of Woman

When life throws you a bag of sorrow hold out your hands/Little by little mountains are climbed So ends Kate Baer’s remarkable poem Things My Girlfriends Teach Me In Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels she challenges her reader to consider their grandmother’s cake the taste of the sea the cool swill of freedom In her poem Deliverance about her daughter’s birth she writes What is the word for when the light leaves the body?/What is the word for when it/at last returns? Through poems that are as unforgettably beautiful as they are accessible Kate proves herself to truly be an exemplary voice in modern poetry As easy to post on Instagram as they are to print out and frame Kate’s words make women feel seen in their own bodies in their own marriages and in their own lives Her poems are those you share with your mother your daughter your sister and your friends With a robust platform on social media and fans that include Joanna Goddard and Elizabeth Holmes to name a few Kate’s star will only continue to rise
