This collection 
continues the Beat tradition of the American road-warrior poet. Covington's work is rooted in his personal experiences and in the energy of movement. These poems take us from the war-ravaged airfields of Somalia to south Texas ranches, from the badlands of Utah to the Bay Area underground, and from the isolated introspection of a prison cell to the foot lights of the spoken word stage. These poems will resonate with any reader that loves the rush of wind through their hair; any reader that fights against injustice, the status quo, or parochialism; any reader that still believes in the promise held by mountains on the horizon. The poetry is out there, and PW Covington has brought it back, in this collection from Slough Press.

I Did Not Go Looking For This

Personally signed/incribed by the author. Please include details on how you want your book(s) signed.

 


   Accompanied by provocative photographic art, this collection spans some of Covington's most prolific periods from 1996-the current day. Some rarely performed pieces are published here for the first time, including "Mine is the Texas" and "A Poem to a Child on the Day of his Birth".

  Deliberately breaking from the "War Poet" mold that PW  found himself trapped and limited by with the success of his debut poetry book, "Like the Prayers of an Infidel", this volume rounds out his material and his voice.

    A unique foreword, written by those that know the poet best offers additional insight into the creative power that some have described as the heart of the "Beat poetry, military counter-culture".

Dear Elsa, Letters from a Texas Prison......a novel by PW Covington

Personally signed/incribed by the author. Please include details on how you want your book(s) signed.

 
Hugo Wayne is trying his best to remain sane amid the insanity. He is convicted of credit card abuse in 2005 by a rural Texas court and is sentenced to prison.

We come to know this itinerant political worker, combat Veteran, and Buddhist practitioner through his letters and other writings. We also learn the harsh realities of life inside the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

As Hugo explores the brutality and suffering of prison, he also addresses deep truths about himself and Buddhist practice. His accounts steer clear of cliches, yet remain authentic to his experience. This is much more than a "prison story".

Can Hugo Wayne become a better person in spite of his conditions, or will the State of Texas destroy his hopes of insight and healing?
