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 take swords over plowshares any day of the week." Please come CAPTION Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR)

Tom ("Did I forget to beat my dog today?" ) Cotton is saying: "If history has taught us anything, it's taught us that Iran's recent unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant military strikes of the most unambiguous nature. . . . This was Vietnam's lesson in The Gulf of Tonkin and Iraq's lesson with their WMDs. . . . If we don't learn from history, Margaret, we'll be condemned to repeat it."


Above CAPTION based on this spud's performance on yesterday's Meet the Press as immortalized in this clip at Crooks and Liars:


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

PresiDented Trump is saying "George, I’m the world’s greatest fan of Democracy and I absolutely adore our fantastic Constitution, I really do, but what can I say if the people don’t want to see me leave the White House in eight years? Who am I to say they’d be wrong? Now that would be presumptuous!"


Above CAPTION based on the story by The Independent, linked at DU in which Trump suggests staying after two terms:


"Register my dick while you're at it." . . . Please come CAPTION NRA's Wayne LaPierre!!!!

Wayne La Pierre is saying: "The Supreme Court and President Trump have to be made aware that there are multiple recreational purposes for silencers. Say your favorite hobby is shooting rats in an urban environment. Well, they're best hunted late at night and, you wouldn't' want to wake the neighbor, would you? Or say you like to use certain threats as part of a disciplinary regime for your children. You wouldn't want to continually disturb the neighbors with police visits, would you? . . . There's all kind of recreational purposes, why instead of flag-football with cloth flags, we could have . . ."


Above CAPTION based upon the following story linked at DU:


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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "And I said to him, you're darn right there's a lesson here: you want something done, get a Mexican before a Democrat.. . . Democrats are worse than Mexicans any day of the week in my book. . . . And then he called me a racist. Can you believe it?"

Above CAPTION based on the following story (abbrev. & link at DU) about Trump's fuax deal with Mexico to avoil=d tarris:


After a heart-attack, this CAPTIONer is back. . . . Please CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("Fool me once and you'll be dead!" ) Trump is saying, "You know me, dear, I've never been a fan of dying, but this place is pretty classy."
