Part Langston Hughes bebop, part Beat freestyle, part Midwestern folk banter, the work of David E. Patton spans generations & weaves together a wealth of styles to create a unique & deeply personal vein of Americana.  A gay, largely self-educated black man who came of age during the turbulence of the Sixties and Seventies, his voice reverberates with a humble confidence & lonesome strength which at once saddens & transfixes.  Largely uninfluenced by recent movements, Patton’s material remains simple, insightful, & ultimately some of the most genuine to exist in modern poetry.

He posts frequently at Uncle David, his blog of poetry and poetics.
