Here is the peopled world that a poet's mind can hold. Overheard lines cast into the poems make for a monologue out of probable dialogue. The book reads like the real world’s rubble without the poet’s overcooked glaze, but also brings out the creative reader in the poet. And we as readers traverse the real and the real contained within the fabled and have what may be described as another classic songbook. —Recommended by Jackson, City Lights Books

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
