New Work

I’m working on a new manuscript: Between Plague & Kleptocracy: Invented Poetic Creations & Conversations of Seva & Bill

Cross-referencing poems of Vsevolod Nekrasov and Bill Knott, Vitkauskas serves as medium, picking up the posthumous conversations and imagined collaborations of these two poets. Vitkauskas hybridizes and recreates their texts, projecting possible dialogues during this perilous time in history: of pandemic, forced isolation, economic decline, and the US finding itself with a pack of kleptocratic cronies in its legislature and a “useful idiot” / puppet in its White House.
