You don't need a classroom to be a teacher, and you don't need to be a teacher to help someone learn a lesson. Taylor Mali's poetry explores this truth in entertaining and plainspoken ways because "the last thing this world needs is another poem" ("The Call to What We Know"). Whether discussing the language of love or the love of language, the poems contained in The Last Time As We Are prove that "He who dares to teach must never cease to learn."

THE LAST TIME AS WE ARE
Because later that morning
the surgeon would cut me
four times, twice on each side,
once on the outside
and once on the inside,
leaving me with nothing
but tiny scars, and I would,
in a few months' time,
be able to be inside you
with nothing - not worry,
nor latex - I kissed you awake
when it was still dark,
and you opened to me,
and we made love
for the last time as we are,
as God made us,
which is to say,
as God made me.
I will never be a father.
