Lourd de Veyra Launches INSECTISSIMO!

Lourd de Veyra, multi-awarded musician, journalist, and three-time recipient of the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for Literature, launched his third poetry collection: INSECTISSIMO! last May 7 at Cubao X.

The author, especially known for his witty Word of the Lourd social commentary videos, attacks his poems with words and imagery of the same social savvy and humor. True to form, De Veyra particularly devoted one poem to “Wasak”, a pop culture phenomenon which “celebrates the damaged, fragmented, and ironic culture that is the Philippines.”
