Poetry. LGBT Studies. This is the second coming of Cedar Sigo's SELECTED WRITINGS in a new expanded edition bound to dig a bicoastal poetic aqueduct with heartland tricklers. Sigo's work is most aptly compared to plumbing without the pipes: water flows in elegant designs through invisible walls at a touch. Originally released in the spring of 2003, the first edition of Sigo's book quickly sold out; the present edition adds a number of new poems to the surviving text and comes sheathed in a freshly offset and letterpressed cover designed by Jeremy Mickel.
