Official Launch Party: Poems for the Garbage Man by Vinnie Sarrocco

  • Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar 1508 11th Ave Seattle, Washington 98122 (map)

Come celebrate the release of Vinnie Sarrocco's first full-length collection, "Poems for the Garbage Man", at Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar with a night of poems, poets, and drinking.

"Poems for the Garbage Man" is a collection of poems written during late nights under the harsh glow of various Walmart parking lots across the country. Sarrocco's work often juxtaposes the whimsical with the macabre realities of reckless wanderlust and prove that someone with calloused hands still has something to say.

Vinnie Sarrocco is a poet and raconteur from rural North Carolina who is currently exiled to Seattle, WA. His work has recently appeared or is forthcoming in Coffin Bell, SPREAD, Rue Scribe, Duck Lake, & Rumble Fish Quarterly. He is the author of the full-length collection “Poems for the Garbage Man” (Chatwin Books).
