Street Speaking

Poems by Abigail Mott


I recently went to a screening of the documentary “A Place of Truth” ( It’s centered around this young street poet Ned Abigail Mott. She writes spontaneous poetry, all around the USA, much like the black and white image above.

"Name a price,
Pick a topic,
Get a poem”

I told her about situation — my biomom disapproving of my partner based on his race — and she wrote me this piercing and beautiful poem on the spot.

Poem is pictured.
