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).

"Will Lie For Food." Please come CAPTION Howard Kurtz Remix!!!

Howard (hypnotized into wakefulness) Kurtz is saying: "When I look closer, what I see is extraordinarily fine reporting by Lauren Green, not letting Reza Aslan get away with the 'scholar excuse' or the 'Ph.D. phoniness' so he can hide his Muslim bias and lull Americans asleep and the jihads can catch us off guard. . . . Boy, at Fox, things get suddenly clear!"

Called out, what do you do? . . . Please come CAPTION Michele Bachmann!!!

Michele ("I'm going for an earnest look" Bachmann is saying: "And I don't request, I demand that Charlie Rangel apologize to The Tea Party for calling us 'crackers' and 'racists.' . . . And all he has is evidence! . . . Like our support of states' voting rights restrictions. Like our support for red-lining and private owners not having to serve anyone even if they can't stand them. . . . And hiring who the hell they want. . . . Like our attack on Affirmative Action! . . . Geez! . . . The list could go on an on . . . But what does it matter? . . All he has is evidence. . . . He can't see what's in our hearts!!!"

Yikes, the red telephone is ringing!!! . . . Please come CAPTION Pat Robertson!!!

Pat ("Just got off the phone with Big G" Robertson is saying: "Well, Terry, the writer of that e-mail had a right to be worried. Killing a digital human being in a video game is just as bad in God's eyes as killing a real life, thinking and breathing human. . . . In fact, He loves mankind so much that if you even dream about taking another person's life, He'll condemn you to everlasting torment in Hell. . . . And there won't be any virtual flames there either, let me tell you that."

His questions, my friends, are blowing in the wind. Please come CAPTION Ted Cruz!!!

Ted ("I've never even had a shadow" Cruz is saying: "We love America so much, shutting down the government is the least we can do."

Zero squared divided by minus-impossible-one. PLease come CAPTION Ted Nugent!!!!!!

Ted ("If you hold a firecracker real tight, it won't explode" Nugent is saying: "I'll how tell you how I know for certain his birth certificate is faked. . . . He's not in James Michener's' Hawaii. . . . There's not even a mention of a black baby being born in the entire 1,056 pages!!! . . . Now you'd think that if a future president is born during the time and in the place a novelist like Michener uses as a great big setting, that Obama would be in there, maybe under a . . . what do you call it ? .. . . Oh yeah, with a psychoname. I've been researching this for almost five years now. . . .It took me a while to get through the whole thing."

Another family man from Cleveland. Please come CAPTION Ariel Castro!!!

Ariel ("All people do is complain, complain, complain" Castro is saying: "Well, Your Honor, if you look at it objectively, they had it pretty dang good. . . . A heck of a lot better than the victims of The Inquisition. . . . And better than people during the plague. . . . Even better than slaves. . . . They didn't even have to work! . . . Objectively, I'd say they owe me for rent and food for over a decade. . . . But I'll not push the matter. . . . That's the kind of guy I am."

Now, on your way to the waste-bin, Spud.

"Sipping from Lethe to cool off." Please come CAPTION Ted Nugent!!!

Ted ("I can only get an erection when a mic is in front of my mouth" Nugent is saying: "Listen, if he was born in Hawaii, how come his name sounds so funny? . . . Has anyone ever seen him eating poi or drinking coconut milk?. . . . Besides, I have a friend who saw an affidavit that swore he had a slit through the inner-nostril walls which he paid a doctor to sew up . . . a slit, by the way, big enough for a bone to go through just like those cannibals in the movies. . . . Would I make up something like that?"

Dinosaur saddles. Eve's T-Rex. Please come CAPTION LA's governor Bobby Jindal (R).

Bobby ("Anyone need an exorcism?" Jindal is saying: "Listen, I have to ban the fake science of evolution from our schools . . . . Here's three reasons right off the top of my head: the word evolve never occurs in The Holy Bible whereas creation and create are used hundreds of times, and concerning people it's Yahweh, not Darwin; evolution cannot account for Noah's Arc or The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; and if we're still evolving, how come no one has wings yet except in the movies? . . . Not even wing stubbies, not one example!"
