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).

PresiDented Trump is thinking: "P.T. Barnum was wrong. It's not 'A sucker is born every minute' but hundreds every second, thousands. . . . And most of them vote . . . and buy hats.

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

PresiDented ("My bone spurs healed themselves; you just can't argue with good genes." )Trump is saying: "I'm not releasing my tax returns for one terrific and legally sound reason: one day someone may want to pass a bill stating that no sitting President of the United States should have to show his tax returns, and I don't want to set a bad precedent . . . . Any lawyer who doesn't take notes will tell you that's as solid as it gets!"

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "No press talk this weekend folks. . . . It's a sacred weekend, or didn't you know that? . . . Two-thousand-and-nineteen-years ago someone was born who we're still talking about today. . . . Amazing. Simply amazing. . . . And he didn't even have a building named after him when he died, but look around today! . . . Interviews simply wouldn't be appropriate."

"Law is just a three-letter word." . . . Please come CAPTION Attorney General William P. Barr!!!

William ("God gave us Trump like he gave us Christ!" ) Barr is saying: "I'm being absolutely truthful when I say that United States should be worried. . . . Very, very worried. They better hope President Trump doesn't sue for reparations. . . . And I think he has a fantasic case. . . . I'm just giving an unbiased opinion."


Above CAPTION based on the political commercial/press conference Barr gave this a.m. as covered by CBS News:


A head wreck is a head wreck. . . . Please come CAPTION Glenn Beck!!!

Glenn Beck is saying: "Listen, I'm not claiming that the Notre Dame fire was started by Islamists, but it sure has all the earmarks. The one that seems a dead giveaway to me is the fact that there is no evidence pointing to them. . . . I mean, give me a break!. . . . Doesn't anybody else find that odd?"


Above CAPTION based on the following clip at Media Matters:


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

PresiDented Trump just finished saying: "Look, if I gave them my tax returns, next they be asking for is justice and good government. All they ever want is more. . . What can you do with these people?"

"Even my wet-dreams come up dry." . . . Please come CATION CPAC Chair Matt Slapp!!!

Matt (lobotomy at age 9) Schlapp is saying: "It's clear why Democrats want open borders and sanctuary cities: voter fraud!!!. . . . Who is better at avoiding boundaries and doing what they want where they're not wanted? . . . Why illegals, of course. . . . So with a fake driver's license, some of these illegals will easily be able to vote over one-hundred times apiece. It's nothing to them. . . . Over one-hundred times, can you believe it?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Fox clip at Media Matters:


"After deep and long consideration . . ." Please come CAPTION Diamond and Silk!!!

Silk (Rochelle Richardson) is saying: "Pete, I'd like to ask Representative Ilhan Abdullahi Omar just one thing: 'How does it feel to be a political hack? To put your own ideology above loyalty to your country and human decency?' . . . And another thing: 'How can you stand to live with yourself?' . . . It must be terrible!"

"After all, it's only fair." Come CAPTION the nation's chief law enforcement officer, A.G. Wm. Barr!

William Barr is saying: "Senator, to avoid all the blacked-out portion for redactions, and in the spirit of total transparency, we've decided to print the entire report in white ink. . . . and we'll be more than happy to make photocopies for everyone who wants one!"

"I take Viagra just for the wet-dreams." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Brian Kilmeade!!!

Brian ("no decent homunculus would have me" ) Kilmeade is saying: "So you claim the goal of socialized medicine is to see the population equipped with prosthetic limbs, wheeling around in motorized wheelchairs, and/or hooked on zombie drugs. . . . Sounds about right to me!"
