They’re baaaaaack… Nanaimo’s free-form and ever-changing poetic ensemble known as the Povert Coverts has struck again in the weedy lot at the end of Prideaux Street!
Yesterday under sunny skies seven Covert Poverts performed Mary Ann Moore‘s poem “Call Me The Name I Call Myself” to an audience seated on concrete abutments.
Yesterday’s Poverts (from left to right) were: Kim Clark, Kim Goldberg, Rie Okamura, Leanne McIntosh, Gordon May, Mary Ann Moore and David Fraser.
Covert Poverts are a loose-knit, self-defining group of Nanaimo-area poets who stage collaborative poetry happenings in unorthodox locations (vacant lots, alleys, bridges, drainage ditches…) advertised only through the cybervine – email, twitter, facebook. Like raves or flashmobs, but for poetry. Our inaugural Povert Covert happening occurred in July.
