Marc Nasdor reads from Insurgentes/Avenues


Marc Nasdor and I arrived in NYC around the same time. I remember when he curated the Monday Night Reading Series at Saint Mark’s Church with Chris Kraus back in the day. Marc (a/k/a Poodlecannon) is a well known world music DJ in New York City, Budapest, Nantes, France, Mexico City, Merida and the Yucatan. After a fourteen year hiatus from writing poetry, Roof Books published Sonnetailia in 2007. Ron Silliman wrote: “Nasdor is a poet of compactness, compressed excess, & to my own eye these pieces work best the more crowded they feel, which in general is quite a bit.” His current manuscript is Insurgentes / Avenues. The poems that follow on the Vimeo are from that work soon to be published by Roof Books. Enjoy.



The three poems Marc reads from Insurgentes/Avenues are on the following PDF:
