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.
