    The Study Includes Three Arms
    by Carolyn De Carlo
    Contact decarlo.carolyn (at) gmail (dot) com

    This is a poem constructed by selecting sentences from random Wikipedia articles – a modern day version of the cut-up. DeCarlo creates a surprisingly vivid portrait in a mere 6 sentences; the poem feels like it could be an abstract of a Wes Anderson film.

    This simple mini-zine, a format not often constructed with such care, is precisely folded with an added cover. A simple line drawing of the title on the cover compliments the minimalistic contents – the poem is cleanly handwritten inside, nothing fancy – this simplicity leaves room for us to flesh out the story ourselves. A sweet and clever zine.

    A new poem of mine entitled 'e x I S t' went live on Plain Wrap Press this morning.

    The poem’s format was inspired by Inger Christensen’s epic poem alphabet (New Directions, 2001).
