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).

"Suffer the little children to bugger off!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!


PresiDented Donald ("What's that popping sound in the middle of my cranium?" )Trump is saying: "So what if Christianity Today is against me? Christ himself endorsed me. . . . He told me so last night."


Above CAPTION based on Christianity Today's editorial (ca. 12.20.19) which found Trump guilty of impeachable crimes and unfit for the presidency.

"I know logic. It's a 5-letter word." . . . Please come CAPTION Mitch McConnell!!!

Mitch ("I only dream of small animals dying" ) McConnell is saying: "The framers of the Constitution created the Senate to put the brakes on a prosecution of a duly-elected president who is somewhat unconventional and explores new means of governance. Our president is guilty only of thinking outside the box, the narrow, cramped, little box of conventional thinking that says a foreign power has no business in our elections. . . . Where's the logic in that? We were all foreigners once. Does that mean we shouldn't vote? . . . Thank God our framers were smarter than that. . . . The Democrats should try thinking for once."


Above CAPTION based on this consciousness-challenged spud's speech before the Senate 12.19.19, the day after the House passed two articles of impeachment against PresiDented Donald J(erkoff) Trump.

"Iago was a lazy wanker." . . . Please come CAPTION Stephen Miller!!

Stephen Miller is saying: "Doesn't that make you mad, when they are laughing at you like this. . . . It's an insult to your country. . . . They're all race traitors and human scum. . . . They haven't the guts to kick you out of office. . . . We really need a strong leader, one who doesn't wait around and listen to the courts or the Congress like a mommy's boy. . . . Remember, we've got martial law with just one stroke of the pen. . . . . Anytime you want. . . . Things are going to be fine."


CAPTION on this day of the third presidential impeachment barring an accident.

Shelock Holmes is wearing double Depends. . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Guiliani!!!

Rudy Guiliani is saying: "And my surprises have got surprises. . . . Your hair is going to curl and then straighten back up again. . . . When you hear what I've found you'll probably even forget your own name for a half-a-minute or more. . . . The Congress, as crooked as the Democrats are, will not only exonerate our president but give him a Super-Congressional Medal of Honor for fighting corruption worldwide. . . . Believe me. . . . I'm not a man given to hyperbole. . . . Just one look and people know that's true."


Above CAPTION based on this animated turd's return for Ukraine with promises of break-through revelations, 12.17.19.

Felonies for Jesus! Please come CAPTION disgraced preacher Jim Bakker, formerly of the PTL Club.

Jim ("But everything I'm saying now is true!" ) Bakker is saying: "If Trump is impeached, I wouldn't be surprised to see little old ladies taking to the streets or even a civil war break out because we evangelicals love him so very, very much. . . . He's a light in a howling storm. . . . He's a moral compass in a chaotic world. . . . He's a super-Christian and God's chosen instrument in today's world right now, today . . . and that's the gospel truth! . . . You can take it to the bank. . . . After all, if you can't believe me, who can you believe?"


Above CAPTION based on the story about this ex-felonious fraud in Crooks and Liars which contains a lovely clip:


"Worst thing I ever did in my life was tell the truth." Come CAPTION Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)!!!

Louie Gohmert is saying: "Brian, it was an outrage. . . . The chairman told us to go home overnight and search our conscience without providing even a hint of how one goes about doing that."

Brian Kilmeade is thinking: "Does he have a great point or what? . . . I mean, how do you even find it?"


Above CAPTION based on Chairman Jerry Nadler's instruction to the Judiciary Committee at the end of a 14-hour hearing to draw up the articles of impeachment:

"Chill, Greta. Ever hear of anger management?" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is tweeting: "Greta, Why so worked up? The world's still here, isn't it? Maybe it was all to get on Time magazine? (I've been on the cover 29 times.) Or maybe it's because you know you're a loser. Just wait till you get fat and even more ugly. Or maybe you just need a boyfriend. Find some geek in Iceland and leave the rest of us alone, okay?"


Above CAPTION based on t he rage-tweet-storm this morning (12.12.19).

Profiles in Crazy, Dec. 10, 2019 edition. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("Supersize me" )Trump is saying: "Here's the plan: you write a letter casting aspersions on the IG report then get John Durham to do the same. . . . If Durham has a problem with this, just tell him to take out a second mortgage on his soul. It's done all the time."


Above CAPTION based on Barr and Durham's comments after the IG report cleared the FBI of political bias in their investigation of Trump as covered in The New York Times:


Shock and Awe: tweet storming the day away. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is tweeting: "Do-nothing Democrat Party. Absolutely perfect call. Bidens up to their necks in corruption. Shifty Schiff and Crazy Nancy. No collusion. Greatest president in history. Totally vindicated. Lock her up! Mexico WILL pay for wall. Stable genius."


Above CAPTION based on the reports of 105 tweets by this spud in the past 24 hours.

Please come CAPTION The Greatest Crime Fiighter of All Time: Rudy Guiliani

Rudy ("Just answer the question!" ) Guiliani just finished saying: "And what I've dug up in Ukraine will not only make the Democrats drop the impeachment hearings, but demand that the perpetrators of the Ukraine hoax be held to account. . . . Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if many Democrats, some people are even saying most of them, will change party affiliation and vote for an official Congressional apology to be given to our great Presiden along with The Congressional Metal of Honor. . . . And I'm not a man given to hyperbole!"
