Description (in English): 

permafrost is a poetry chapbook by Álvaro Seiça. permafrost launches ‘The Proposal Series,’ a collaborative editorial project by Bypass Editions and Flatland Design.

On September 15, 2008, the newspaper Público published an article about the world’s most northern town, Longyearbyen, Norway, which chronicled the unusual life and habits of the researchers that study the Arctic and its permafrost, the permanently frozen subsoil.

Inspired by this text, Álvaro Seiça wrote a series of sms poems with 140 characters, challenging not only the boundaries between informative text and fictional text, but also the meaning of poetic text, poem, poetic sources, and line break.
