Phil Kaye's debut collection is a stunning tribute to growing up, and all of the challenges and celebrations of the passing of time, as jagged as it may be. Kaye takes the reader on a journey from a complex but iridescent childhood, drawing them into adolescence, and finally on to adulthood. There are first kisses, lost friendships, hair blowing in the wind while driving the vastness of an empty road, and the author positioned in the middle, trying to make sense of it all. Readers will find joy and vulnerability, in equal measure. Date & Time is a welcoming story, which freezes the calendar and allows us all to live in our best moments....

Date & Time Reviews
Phil Kaye's collection re-emphasizes the importance of time, and the intricacies of healing that comes with time, is non-linear. His focus on divorce, relationships, race, history, mental health, body image, the present in our post 2016-election era, and family in his poetry is worth delving into.
His distinct voice is one that becomes easily captivating because of its honesty and humor. Child-like and adult simultaneously.
You'll enjoy it!
I stumbled on Phil Kaye several years ago while in college and have been a fan since. This collection is wonderful, thought-provoking, and honest.
i discovered phil through his and sarah's poem when love arrives and i really liked the work i've found after.
i couldn't help but cry a little over the poem about his grandmother. he's such a beautiful writer
I’m in love with spoken word poetry and Phil truly is one of the greats. Fist off the cover is gorgeous, second off the poetry was lovely. I know of Phils work mainly from his videos on button so It was really interesting to see some of his poetry was written out and what style it takes on the page and how that translates to being spoken aloud.
I really like how Phil often talks of his family history and how that shaped his life, that a very different theme than what most poets go for. Phil also ...more
I'm so glad I savored this book. I enjoyed every page, and knew I would since I'm a big fan of Kaye's work. This was one of my favorite reads for the year. The heartwarming stories and sometimes sorrowful ones are both equally amazing.
This book proves that Kaye's words can be just as effective on paper as they are when spoken. He touches on similar themes of family, culture, and coming of age that Rupi Kaur does in her books. I encourage any poetry fan to purchase this collection.
Poems that hit me the hardest: "Phantom Limb" and "Ferris Wheel"
