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).

"I'll bet he gets lousy ratings!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Watching the Comey testimony Donald ("I rather be playing golf" Trump is thinking: "Damn. . . . What can I do? . . . I know, I could issue a pardon for me which will work for all the future. . . . But some lawyers would probably poke holes in it. . . . I know, I could declare martial law and take over the entire government. . . . But most of the generals hate me. . . . I know, I could give myself immunity and then come clean. . . . But those damn lawyers . . . ! . . . Hell, I know what I'll do!! Where did I leave my phone?"

Adm. Michael ("You bring the lube" Rodger is saying: "I'll give you a very good reason for not answering your question, Senator. The best. . . . Because Mom used to call that tattling. . . . Is that what all this is about? . . . You got something against my mother? . . . Why, if I wasn't a professional, I'd strip off these bars, jump over this table, and . . . "


Above CAPTION based on the non-testimony June 7th before The Senate Intelligence Committee as reported by the New York Times:


"Only designer colostomy bags, you idiot!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("God has to ask me for loans" Trump is saying: "Listen, I've got nothing personally against this Khan, the so-called Mayor of London, . . . I mean, he seems nice enough, though awfully small, . . . but just look at his name, . . . 'Sadiq Khan.' . . . Why he's not even ashamed enough to change it to a good Christian name. . . Geez! . . . See what I'm dealing with here?"


Above CAPTION based on Trump's criticism of London's mayor after the Lodo attacks of early June 2017.

"That's why God invented hollow-point bullets." . . . Come CAPTION CongressMAN Clay Higgins (R-LA)!

I have been CAPTIONing at DU since the turn of the millennium, but can't think of a CAPTION that could possibly top what what this spud had ass a campaign ad, can you?

The above shots come from the following Crooks & Liars story:


"After all, what have you got to lose?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Tired of winning yet?" Trump is saying: "So what if there hasn't been any legislation? . . . 'Legislation' is just another word for people who don't know what they're doing. . . . And what if Repeal and Replace is on hold? . . . That's going exactly as I planned. . . . It's going to be great! . . . And who really cares if we don't have a budget yet? . . . I mean budgets are boring, right? . . . And what's all this about my weakening traditional alliances and emboldening our traditional enemies? . . . A lot of traditions are stupid, right? . . . All in all I'd rate my first four-and-a-half months of my administration a stunning success. . . . Off the charts! . . . There's never been anything like it. . . . That's what a lot of people are saying."

"My sphincter's so tight, when I fart only dogs can hear it.". . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!

Sean (third mortgage on soul) Hannity is saying: "No President has had to weather such abuse by his critics, not one! . . . All day long, it's 'Russia,' 'Russia,' 'Russia.' . . . That's all they can say, . . . and when there's not one shred of evidence pointing to collusion with the Trump team. . . . And everybody knows that's the same as saying all the evidence points to the fact that there was no collusion whatsoever. . . . Nothing. . . . Nada. . . . End of story! . . . Elementary logic would tell you that!"

"Do I look stupid, or what?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (God's boss) Trump just finished saying: "Why would I bother to wake up my intelligence heads to find out what happened in London when two clicks of the mouse takes me to The Drudge Report? . . . Do I look stupid, or what?."

Kimberley ("Science was a boring class in high school" Guifoyle just finished saying: "Well I'll respond to my critics, Greg, by asking them a question in turn: 'Who better for the President to consult on climate change than me?' . . . I mean I've always spoken highly of him and I get really good ratings!"


Above CAPTION based on the report that Trump consulted this intellectual stump prior to pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord as reported in Media Matters:


"This will make them drop a load!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("Who needs other mammals?" Trump is thinking: "Let em see, 'Nobody loves the earth better than me.' . . . That's good, brilliant in fact, now what else? . . . Oh yeah, I got it: . . . 'But they say when you love something, you should set it free.' . . . Wow! That's great! . . . It's like philosophy or psychology or something. . . . I wonder when they're going to add music to these things?"

"The crowd went wild!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I could sexually molest a handicap child on 5th Avenue and they'd still vote for me" Trump is saying: "The left wingers and the scientists say that higher CO2 emissions will mean melting polar ice caps, rising sea level, catastrophic weather events inclusing massive hurricanes and wildfires, world-wide crop failures, the displacement of millions, massive starvation, and the eventual extinction of the human race as well as thousands of other species besides, . . . . but I say to them: I got 306 electoral college votes! . . . Which is like the highest ever."


Above CAPTION based on this clown announcing U.S.A. will no longer abide by the connditons set in the Paris Climate Accord on 6/1/17 as covered by The New York Times:
