All This Time
All This Time
The newest collection from poet, editor, and Bagley Wright lecturer Cedar Sigo, All This Time, pays homage to artistic influences that have shaped his poetic practices. Lyrical and haunted, these poems call attention to the experience of living as an embodiment of art, reminding the reader that poetry is like an open-air structure; it is open to all who are curious enough to welcome everything in.
Words flow down the page like rain that might glaze William Carlos Williams’ wheelbarrow.
— Rain Taxi
Poems jitter down pages, wildly enjambed, or arrive in prose blocks, as if each were having a visual chat with some stylistic antecedent.
—Stefan Milne, Seattle Met
...a clarity of pure ease of meditative thinking: a poetry that simply and beautifully is.
