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).

"LGBT is my electric company, right?" Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Let's face it, everybody's mentally challenged but me." Trump is saying: "NBC just called me the most LGBT friendly of the Republicans candidates. . . . And I guess they're right. . . . I think anybody should be able to do what they want to do . . . as along as I don't have to see it, hear about it, read about it, or even think about it, then sure, . . great. . . . Let them do what they want, . . . even if it's utterly disgusting!"


Above CAPTION based on the following item with a clip at Media Matters:


"Want to wake with a horse's head in the sack with you?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("My hemorrhoids are more articulate than half the world's population" Trump is saying: "Listen folks, I'm the world's biggest believer in democracy. . . . I think I can safely say, I love democracy more that almost everyone here combined! . . . But I can also say that if a few Republican primary delegates stand between America and us 'being great again,' . . . well, maybe a few death threats might make them think about it. . . . But like I say, democracy is simply the greatest of all time, . . . all time!!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


Armor-piercing flatulence. . . . Please come CAPTION Wayne LaPierre!!

Wayne ("Once I shot myself in the middle of my forehead. Didn't feel a thing." LaPierre is saying: "The NRA is deeply gratified that so many Americans have purchased guns and are ready to use them, . . . but with so many guns out there, they should start seriously thinking about body armor to protect themselves and their loved ones. . . . Of course, since their assailants might have body armor as well, their guns and rifles should be loaded with armor piercing bullets. . . . Then, if that doesn't work . . . "

"They should put my picture on the billion-dollar bill!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Tubman who?" Trump is saying: "Harriet Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill? . . . That's crazy, George! . . . I'm not a racist, and I love Tubman, I mean she's really great, . . . fantastic, in fact! . . . . But it's just another example of misguided political correctness. . . . I say 'misguided' because only black drug dealers, car jackers, muggers, or rap artists will ever get to see a twenty-dollar bill with her picture on it. . . . Are we sure we want to encourage that type of activity? . . . Why don't we have a two dollar bill and put her on that? . . . I mean, how much does an 18-ouncer cost?"


Above CAPTION based on the following item with a clip at Huffington Post:


Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani!!! . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Sorry, there's no room at the Inn." Trump is saying: "My second favorite Bible quote is 'an eye for an eye.' . . . Right after the one that tells you to make sure and cast the first stone."

CAPTION based on Mike Malloy's takedown 0f Trump posted at DU:


"Sanity's a myth!" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("How can I sleep with people always screaming in my head?" O'Reilly is saying: " . . . but I'll tell you who's really the racist. . . . It's those people calling me a racist!!! . . . But take a good look at them, ladies and gentlemen, before you believe a word they say. . . . They're just a bunch of rap-crazed, dope-smoking, hip-hopping, dice throwing, race-hustling, zoot-suited losers with a tattoo in the middle of their foreheads, always crying for more and screaming they've been discriminated against. . . . Who's going to believe trash like that?? . . . I rest my case. . . . And that's the Talking Points Memo. .. . Now onto the ignorance, laziness, immorality, and unwarranted sense of privilege in African-American communities, so called."


Above CAPTION based on the clip mounted at Media Matters:


"I'll tell you where the Middle East is. It's on the map!" . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!!

Donald ("You can't trick me!" Trump is saying: "Listen, I'm going to get the best minds around, like Einstein and Darwin and those guys at the Manhattan Project. . . . They would have known what to do on 7/11 when ISIS attacked us, because they know the fact and want to win!"


Above CAPTION based on the following story on the Huffington Post:


"'Days of Rage' is a metaphor for how nice I'm going to be." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!!

Donald ("I didn't get my own limo until I was thirteen." Trump is saying: "Listen, folks, let's just get this straight right now. I did not . . .repeat not . . . threaten violence at the RNC Convention! . . . That's the lying media once again. . . . What do you expect from them, the sniveling, thieving, larcenist liars! . . . That's what they are! . . . All I said was that if I'm not nominated, there'd be days of rage this July. . . . I didn't say anything about having my thugs come to understandings with certain deviant delegates. . . . I didn't say anything about harassing phone calls, or calling up their families, or unexpected visits. . . . I don't know where the media gets 'threatens violence.' . . . I simply don't get it. . . . In fact, the delegates should be thanking me . . . for helping them see the light before it's too late."

QAbove CAPTION based on Corey Lewandowski interview covered at News Hounds:


"If I get my hands on them, they'll never call me a bully again!" Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("I read the Bible every night, whether I'm with Melania or someone else." Trump is saying: "No, no, Anderson, my enemies are very real. Very real! . . . Why this morning the Huffington Post tried to blame me for the recent upsurge of hatred, fear, and bullying in public schools. . . . Guess what they're calling it? The Trump effect! . . . Can you believe these people? . . . Where do they come up with this crap? . . . I'm telling you right here and now, Anderson, if they don't retract, my lawyers and I are going to bury that rag, . . . then we'll stomp on the graves of everyone involved! . . .The Trump effect. . . . Imagine!"


The Huffington Post item in question:


Someone, please open the window! . . . Please come CAPTION Trump's dump: Roger Stone!!!

Roger ("If I'm dying, I'm lying" Stone is saying: "I don't understand. . . . How could it possibly hurt my credibility as a Trump spokesman that I am writing a book about how the Clinton's murdered J. F. K. Junior as a ritual to show loyalty to their alien masters? . . . I'm surprised at you, Larry. I thought only the left-wing press would ask such a ridiculous question. . . . Geez."
