The Motor Hotels of Central Avenue by PW Covington
Contemporary Beat poet PW Covington returns with this collection of hard lived and masterfully delivered verse. From the US/Mexico border to the Standing Rock reservation, Covington brings us impressions and stains left upon his soul as he traveled the continent, following the release of his collection "Sacred Wounds". His pace will be familiar to readers accustomed to his style, but this collection is much more "now" oriented than his previous books. Accessible, direct, and unflinching (even psychedelic, at times)...this is poetry born on the highway, not in the classroom. Pack a bag and kiss your loved ones goodbye; join PW Covington "out there", where the poetry is found!Photographs of vintage motel signs, along Route 66, taken by the writer, provide an interesting counter-punch to the words and rhythm brought by his poems. ...Includes a "Yage Letters" inspired foreword by the Poet Laureate of McAllen, TX, Edward Vidaurre.
