Poetry alumn Lara Egger’s poem “French Entrance” originally published in Copper Nickel was recently featured in Verse Daily. Read an excerpt of the poem below:

French Entrance
All the best deathtraps are spoken for.
It’s remarkable how quickly
one becomes accustomed to the taste.
I am behaving like an astronaut
jonesing for a Quarter Pounder.
Have you ever asked your doctor
if Ennui™ is right for you?
