malepoet by PW Covington
malepoet. is the newest work by PW Covington. In this intimate work, Covington explores places, people, and even himself, as he ventures across the American landscape. Written in the Beat tradition, this book will be shared and read by the next generation, and the one after. Come inside the mind of PW as he celebrates the death of the straight, white, male, poet.
“As a fellow restless soul and troubadour traveler, I love the moments here when Covington almost gives the road a good name, lets us sit with it for a minute, and then, delicately destroys its reputation again. It’s that strange life of the hopeless wanderer he describes as “still looking for a home to leave.” It’s truck stops, “Condom machines and gasoline.” It’s honest, thoughtful, sometimes tender, often tough, this is a testament to a life “Mixed with gin and dreams / Little poetry magazines.” –Nathan Brown, Former Poet Laureate of Oklahoma, Winner of the Oklahoma Book Award
