Nick Power reading from Lance La Rocque’s Vermin at the Fall 2011 Launch

Vermin is a collection of diverse poems, matter-of-fact daydreams of body parts, money, family life, murder, children, and animals. Whimsical, unsettling, or creepy, depending on the reader’s mood, the poems are united by an urge to crawl out from the suffocating spells of late capitalism, and take a look around.
