You Gotta Speak with It Too

This man is brilliant. Watch, observe, then canvas YouTube for more of Taylor Mali. 

I especially enjoy Mali's clips with Billy Collins chilling on the wings of the stage. Can you imagine performing poetry in front of Collins, and what's more, making him laugh? 

And be sure to check out Bowery Poetry Club, where a few of Mali's poetry readings take place. The Bowery Poetry Club website leads to a wealth of information on the current world of poetry. It's really quite spectacular.

I do apologize for brief profanity within this first clip.

And thank you, Shelbi, for the Facebook link that led me to this.
