    One thought on “The Last Time as We Are”

    1. As a teacher and lover of poetry myself, there is much in Taylor Mali s poetic voice, humor, and gravitas that I found infectious and compelling Beloved for his inimitable slam poetry, both in style and delivery, Mali performs the difficult task of transferring to the written page with flair and eloquence Several pieces in this collection struck me deeply, treating such topics as teaching, love, memory, and death with extraordinary depth and power without sacrificing profound clarity and, at tim [...]

    2. Taylor Mali has long been one of my favorite poets because he never apologizes for his overwhelming desire to be the best at everything he does Often described as the villain of the slam community, Mali has an attention to detail and craft that is unmatched by most performance poets I was so excited to see this collection on the Write Bloody Publishing site that I ordered a hardback copy before it was even released The first time I read it, it took a day Since then, I ve read it at least a dozen [...]

    3. Mali is a didactic poet par excellence I became familiar with his work during the def poetry jam and his valorization of teachers led me into the public school classroom for several years Mali s work is often hyperbolic and highly emotive, and many of his earlier poems worked significantly better in performance than on the page However, in the last ten years, without losing any of the performative or didactic power, Mali s poetry has become readable on the page the cues not relying as much on p [...]

    4. There are a lot of cool poems in here, even if he is a bit samey with certain phrasing He s really original in others, I don t read a whole lot of funny poetry and there are funny parts His best funny poem you can watch here if you re thinking about getting the book available on Kindle, as a book of poetry, means you ll always get a semi favorable review it s called I ll Fight You For the Library youtube watch v 2qXgPf

    5. Poetry stays with us long after we read it From this collection The Ocean Inside, or, Why One Teacup Fell and Not the Other reminds me of the need to fill the empty places with what sustains me Miracle Workers articulates common yet unique moments in the lives of teachers Mali captures the essence of lived experiences with his honest humor and heartfelt wonderings.

    6. Enjoying seeing Taylor Mali at a Capital Center for the Arts school series event and was inspired to buy this book afterwards Although I don t agree with all of his ideas about teaching as presented in some of this poems , I like his sense of humor.

    7. This collection was largely disappointing for me At times, too rhyme y At others, too preachy I m fine with a conversational voice in poetry, but Mali misses the mark than he hits it in The Last Time as We Are.

    8. I think Mali s poetry is best performed aloud,and this collection is no exception Some of the wording is overdone, but most shows brilliance.

    9. I really enjoyed these poems They are focused on story and, for the most part, easy to understand Many of them are about teaching I like those the best Thank you, Melanie Cameron.

    10. A 3 star pic but 4 in the moment Especially when you can call Mali s passion to mind The next time I reread I ll likely stop back by and give it a star bump.
