City on the Second Floor

Editor: Edward Vidaurre

Paperback

Price: $15.00

Overview

Hailed by historians and journalists alike as the “best political poet in America” and “poet laureate of struggle”, Sedillo returns with another instant classic. City on the Second Floor is a meditation on how the world we build and rebuild every day attacks us in so very many unexamined ways. As its pages reveal, “the city was built against us.”

Matt Sedillo brings poetic fire to the burn through the issues - avarice, mediocrity, lies, gentrification, labor, loneliness, class conflict and others - most officially-sanctioned "poets" ignore in the name of the ice cold fakery that calls itself "poetry" in the United States. Thankfully, Sedillo burns down

the house built out of the illusion of democracy, of the "literary". In this sense, he brings necessary fire.

Sedillo is the Carlos the Jackal of poetry.

Matt Sedillo is a poet during times of unveiling, when the source of what makes this country and world tick–and fall part–becomes revealed to millions.

I studied with Ginsberg, I drank with Bukowski, and now I've met the new master. Run and hide, white boy, Sedillo writes with a switchblade. the best political poet alive - and everything is political.
