About Me

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

"Urinalicious!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald (Youre In, Boy ) Trump just finished saying: I know more than all my generals and agencies for two simple reasons: First, Im very, very smart, and secondly, Ive read all the books on military power and strategy and tactics, even the old ones like on Caesar and Hercules. . . . You know, a lot of times they really knew what they were doing back then.


Above CAPTION based on Trump contradiction the head of U.S. intelligence agencies as covered by CNN and The Hill:



One more from the snake pit. . . . Please come CAPTION Jeanine Pirro!!!

Jeanine ("Fool me once, and you're dead." ) Pirro is saying: ". . . calling our President a wimp is inexcusable. Ann Coulter is a vicious little twit (I'm trying to be nice), she should practice breathing underwater, she should test the theory of gravity by jumping out a skyscraper window, or be made to listen to her own program over a car radio while the car's running in a closed garage. . . . And those are the good things I have to say about the bulimic bitch. Wait until I really get going."


Above CAPTION based on Pirro's "Opening Statement" linked at Crooks and Liars:


"Sarah Palin? Michele Bachmann? Crazy? They got nothing on me!" Come CAPTION Fox's Jeanine Pirro!!!

Jeanine (Redefining 'bat-shit crazy' by the day, by the hour) Pirro is saying: "Now our brilliant president has the Dems right where he wants them. . . . They thought they won the border wall-shutdown fight, and he let them think they had him over a barrel. . . . But it's all a strategy. . . . Hasn't Nancy Pelosi seen Raiders of the Lost Arc or any of the adventure movies of the last thirty years for that matter? She's probably been too busy giving middle-school girls abortions or something. . . . So while she wasn't looking, President Trump dealt her a master stroke. . . Just you wait and see!!"


Above CAPTION based on this twit's interpretation of Trumps capitulation to the Democrats which re-opened government 1.25.19. (I think she actually used "master stroke."

Profiles in Crazy, XLVI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is tweeting: "Spanking Nancy Pelosi and Crying Chuck Schumer was easy. Now they know. Great strategy. Wall is just around the corner! Maybe steel slats. But GREAT!!! #NotTiredOfWinning!"

"Getting tired of winning yet?" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is tweeting: "I reopened the government, thereby winning the shut-down fight. Dems are the losers. Bigtime. Now nation knows who the adult-in-the-room is. I won but won't crow about it. After all, I'm the adult.

Profiles in Crazy, XLVI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented (Every Day Is Dementia Day!) Trump is saying: "I'll never cave and for a very good reason. I don't care if the shutdown causes a recession. So what? Or even a depression. I don't care if air-travel halts and non-inspected meat sends thousands to the hospital, or if terrorists come in by the hundreds through unprotected ports. . . . Do you know why? . . . America needs a strong leader."

"Why not President Donald J. Trump Day?" . . . Please come CAPTION the Spud himself!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "As we all know Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was for total equality, a level playing field for everyone. . . . That's why he'd strongly object to the practice of naming national holidays only after dead people."

Profiles in Crazy, XLV. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented (Rapper for Hire) Trump is saying: "A lot of you have wondered what my major address on the the crisis at our border and the government shutdown will be. But in honor of the government shutdown I furrowed my speech-writers and so have nothing to say except these three things I wrote myself: There was no collusion, nada, zip. God-Bless America. And have a nice day."

Sitting in the Liar's Chair! . . . Please come CAPTION Newt Gingrich on F&F!!!

Newt (sucking on a liar's mint) Gingrich is saying: "The fact that Michael Cohen said the President Trump told him to lie to Congress doesn't mean squat. . . . He's a known liar. . . . The fact that BuzzFeed ran the story, means even less. If they thought an alien invasion would go over better, we'd be overrun with alien invasion stories. . . . The fact that there are e-mails and other documents that back up his claim is just hooey. . . . And as for the two so-called law-enforcement officials that back Cohyen's story up just shows how desperate they are. They had to go out and pay someone to support Cohen's lie. . . . It's all so obvious. . . . When are these people going to get serious, anyway?"


Above CAPTION Based to the reply Gingrich gave to Fox and Friends this a.m (1.18.19)n when asked about the BuzzFeed story (linked below):


"Lies are like flies; they both love a ripe pile of sh*t." . . . Come CAPTION Fox's Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("I'm in deep do-do" ) Hannity is saying: "The Deep State has its own cable news (just change the channel), its own police force (the F.B.I), its own newspapers (the failing New York Times and wacky Washington Post), their own political party (guess who?), and their own agendas (social justice, black lives matter, climate change, equal pay for eaual work, and on, and on). . . . You could could say the Deep State is right there on the surface. . . . That's how they've managed to stay hidden for so long. . . . It only makes sense."


Above CAPTION based on David Pakman's take on this ass-clown 1/16/19 as linked at DU:
