I am currently working on a new poetry & stories book entitled “New Disease Streets” this is a book of mostly thematic poetry that encompasses the horrible year of 2020.  Including my poems “Archaic Motorcycle Breath” “Bullets From the Cowboys” “New Disease Streets” “Prudence of Anguish” and many more!  Also, in the upcoming months include more Poetry & Stories books “Before I Turn Into Gold” and a revision to my first book with a shorten title “the Famous Poetry Outlaws” I am working on putting together my books in a more thematic & shortened way like I did with “The Cartoon Diaries” late last year.  I have decided to take the books “All of Our Fears in Tunnels” and the massive book “Reflections” off the market while I work on re-purposing the poetry in those titles.
