A devout poet-philosopher and practitioner, Saijo is committed to illuminating his vision for others through language. Realizing all the while the inherent limitations of this construct we call language, Saijo expounds upon the ineffable as much as is humbly and humanly possible.
Lawrence Ferlinghetti says, "Albert Saijo has the great vision most poets and painters never had." Saijo is the author of Trip Trap with Jack Kerouac and Lew Welch and The Backpacker. Of Outspeaks A Rhapsody, Saijo's first collection of poetry, Gary Snyder says: "All CAPS and dashes, Albert Saijo's poem is a great life's strong song."
