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. "Texto" is French for "text message," and these stark, uncanny, often funny poems fleetingly and memorably transform the cell-phone screen into a book.
