Cedar Sigo



By Cedar Sigo

  • Cedar Sigo’s fourth collection restlessly enacts the pleasures of writing. With a mix of condensed, syllabic poems and longer serial pieces, and with many poems addressed to other poets, Sigo explores the romance of being a poet while also drawing on the color and symmetries of the visual arts.

    Finalist for the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Poetry

  • Sigo thinks deeply about what art can actually do in the aesthetically and lyrically exhilarating poems of his fourth collection. . . . a book rich in references, consistently reminding readers of art’s wild entanglements.
    Publishers Weekly

    Fortunately, Sigo’s work, though often investigating (and appearing bound to) that history of American Poetry, also frequently appears to be operating beyond it. Beyond those poets and that lineage is Sigo himself, his critically-thinking mind, which floats above and toward an ethereal other space.
    Greg Bem, Yellow Rabbits
