Michael Covenant Watson

Michael Covenant Watson is the producer and host of Wordslingers Poetry on the radio where on the first and third Sunday evenings on 88.7 FM WLUW and streaming live on www.wluw.org. Chicago poets can be heard doing what they do best, massaging the lexicon and seducing the lingo.

As a Chicago poet Michael Covenant Watson is intrigued by watching people run the obstacle courses of situational ethics across fields of conflicting passions. Much of his poetry is an attempt to articulate the spectrum of human experience through the lens of magical realism or perhaps magical scientism. In his work — a state of mind that's always under construction — Michael uses words to sculpt a universal mosaic from local snapshots of time.

Michael Watson performs his poetry at 32nd&Urban on October 27.
