Poetry. A companion volume to Riggs's books 28 Telegrams, 43 Post-Its and 38 Instant Messages, 60 TEXTOS continues the poet's investigation into the ways affect and technology co-exist.

Concise communication and yet personal and profound, and yet... poetry.
So contemporary.
the beauty of the poetic language is that it cal give sense to everything, included the normally uberpragmatic or utterly devoid telephone messaging.
That’s what Sara Riggs does. And she does it very well.
