What are you working on?

I most always have three or even four projects on three or four burners at once. Right now: a long poem about the first Dutch exploration from Albany, New York (then Fort Orange), west to about the Mohawk River, Little Faust Goes to Hell, a multimedia work, which is being written to be produced and performed at an upcoming fringe festival, a novella about a small western New York rust-belt town in Trump's America, and a cycle of poems written as a calendar and inspired by the seasonal paintings of the painter Charles Burchfield.
