Taylor Mali - Poet - Teacher
Discovered the joy who is Taylor Mali today. Watch his YouTube videos over and over and got happier at each viewing.
A lawyer once asked him, "Mali, you're a teacher, what do *you* make?" (This was during a conversation about occupations and salaries.)
And Mali replied, "I make a difference. What about you?"
From one of his poems:
"When two boys are fighting, I break it up. When two girls are fighting I wait until that shit's over then drag what's left to the nurse's office."
