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).

"Besides, it's a screwy religion!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I've taken dumps that are worth a dozen of you twerps!" Trump is saying: "These liberal losers claim that by banning Muslims, I'm playing right into the hands of ISIS. . . . WRONG!!!! . . . Geez. . . . How is driving more people to join them so that we can all know who's who and what's what before we have a final showdown heralding the end times playing into their hands? . . . I just don't get it."

"I'll make America hate once again!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("Just why are you interested in whether my mother had any 'live births'?" Trump is saying: "Once I tried to blow my brains out, but I missed."

"Herd them up. Head them out. . . . Rawhide!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Clint Eastwood fantasizes about me!" Trump is saying: "Most people don't understand. . . They think we interred the Japanese during World War Two for our own protection. . . . Wrong! . . . It was to keep the Japanese Americans from suffering abuse, discrimination, and violence at the hands of racists! . . . Besides they were more comfortable being around their own kind. . . . What's so wrong about that?"


CAPTION loosely based on the following Huffington Post story:


"You will talk, Joe. You be happy to talk soon, real soon." . . . Please com CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Who put the locomotion in relocation?" Trump is saying: "Listen, I'm no Nazi, but that doesn't mean I can't learn from a few of things they did. . . . Like killing families of the Résistance members. . . . Bet there would be less terrorism if we did that! . . . And if that doesn't work we can do whole villages, or townships, or whatever. . . . Let the press go ahead and call me a Nazi if they want. . . . It doesn't matter. . . . Besides, we'll see about them next!"


Above CAPTION based on the following DU story with a healthy clip from The Young Turks discussing Trump's latest verbal flatulence:


"You can learn alot from the backs of cereal boxes." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Gary B. Smith!!

Gary B. (as in "Birdbrain" Smith is saying: "Listen, it's really very simple. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a good thing. . . . Heck, it's a great thing! . . . Where would the liberals rather have it? . . . Down here were we live? . . . We should get on our knees and thank the coal and petroleum industries for getting that crap out there and away from us. . . . And, you know Brenda, this is just the time of year to do so."


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following New Hounds story with a healthy clip:


"And I stole Christmas from the *!#@?* Grinch!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Peter Johnson!!!

Peter ("I never loaned my mother another cent. . . . Just like I never saw that two-bits again!" Johnson is saying: "Steve, what we need here is the truth based on rational and intelligent thinking. . . . What we have in San Bernardino are clearly the first shots of a literal war on Christmas!!! . . . Two Muslims in jihadi cluster-rut, shoot up a Christmas party. . . . How can you get more obvious than that?? . . . And here's where clear thinking comes into play: the logical next step would be for them to start mowing down Salvation Army Santas, and wearing suicide vests in the toy section of Macy's, and putting poison on the glue of Christmas card envelopes! . . . Anybody can see that!! . . . Like I said, 'Truth based on rational thinking.'"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story with Fox clip::


"If it's such a great religion, why doesn't the Bible mention Muslims?"...Come CAPTION Steve Doocy!

Steve ("Pull my finger" Doocy is saying: "You're right, Donald, and that opens up another whole can of worms, doesn't it? . . . Like just who is responsible for all the missing tapes of celebrating New Jersey Muslims on 9-11?? . . . Wow! . . Not to mention who changed all the news articles and altered photographs from over two dozen local and regional print and media news sources? . . . Darn, this is getting really big!!"


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following News Hounds story with a hilarious clip of circus clowns:
