A poem from Mali's spoken-word collection
"The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. It could be measured in national poetry slam competitions. But I believe the poet is only as good as his words, and there is no better showcase for the words of Taylor Mali than this incredible collection of live performances. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry." By Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, from the liner notes to Conviction.

Funny, and Entertaining
I saw Taylor Mali live today. He came to present at my school and he did this piece, it's funny our auditorium was filled with laughs while he was on the stage. He seemed like a nice guy too, which is always a good thing.
