Does a poem have parts? Organs? Systems? How do they fit together? And can they be teased apart? On Friday, 11 March, join us for the latest installment in Cabinet’s Poetry Lab series—and bring your scrubs, since the evening will consist of a set of poetic “dissections” and experimental operations. Scalpels will be provided. Bring rigor, imagination, and a steady hand to these exercises that split the difference between the scansion of prosody and sculpture in paper. Think of it as your chance to play doctor with William Carlos Williams.
