He was raised on the Suquamish reservation near Seattle, Washington, and studied at Naropa with poets Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Alice Notley, and Joanne Kyger, among others.

In the past decade, Sigo has collaborated with many visual artists and writers.
 

Selected Poems

Seriously Underdressed


Cedar Sigo

 

Acid washed

Jean, bitten down

Fingernails, I've been

Uptight all

This week wishing

Invisibility,

Scented tissue

I can tease

Into flowers, same

As ever, My heart-

shaped collapsible

Locket is still

Missing & I miss

Wearing it open,

I remember a black

Fog inside so

Combed through, trapped

And willingly

Shining on me
