Language Arts, like Cedar Sigo, is playfully spontaneous. Sigo uses poetry as a way to record his own adventures as a reader, traveler, lover, poet, friend, and he welcomes the reader to share the experience. The pleasure he gets in writing these poems is infectious, and the resulting collection is absorbing for its movement, personality, and music.
"Cedar Sigo is a Frank O'Hara for the twenty-first century: witty, erudite, serious, with a terrific ear and eye for the minutest details, at home in the world of the arts."—Ron Silliman
