Lance La Rocque


in an age when I don’t know
what to make of it,
I detach myself
from my dick my dick
from myself
unfolding in the evening paper
set on the kitchen counter
looking like a mournful measure
ill-fitted animal trapped in its thin skin—
a package of wrinkled letters
stuffed up a translucent hide.
bulging. messages you can almost read.
like when a dreamer speaks.

Lance La Rocque lives in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and teaches at Acadia University. His poems have appeared in Industrial Sabotage, This Magazine, the chapbook The Gross Metaphysics of Meat (Proper Tales Press), and the anthology Surreal Estate: 13 Canadian Poets Under the Influence (The Mercury Press). His most recent work is Vermin (BookThug).
