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).

"Hold them up in the air!! . . . High!" . . . Come CAPTION Ferguson's Police Chief Thomas Jackson!!!

Ferguson Police Chief is saying: "To answer your questions in turn: . . . No! . . . The Ferguson Police Force is not overly armed! . . . You never know when an invasion, like by aliens, can happen. . . . Or when zombies begin turning your children into their demonic weapons! . . . Haven't you ever gone to the movies? . . . What are you going to do then? . . . If anything, we need more arms like rocket launchers, and more armed troop carriers. . . . Why, I'm still waiting to hear on a request for five gross of claymores. . . . And another resounding 'No' to your second question. . . . S.W.A.T.'s response was not over-bearing or brutal. . . . On the contrary, we've been as gentle as you can expect. . . . After all, we've kept from napalming the crowd, didn't we? . . . at least up to now!"

Where have all the founder gone? . . . Please come CAPTION Brian Kilmeade!!

Brian ("I gotta jar of dirt in my dressing room" Kilmeade is saying: "You're right, Steve: if these lily-livered politicians in Ferguson and the state of Missouri didn't cave when they got a just little bit of criticism, the S.W.A.T. teams would have gotten things under control in short order, probably a couple more days and nights, . . . maybe a week. . . . Sure, they'd have to knock a few heads, . . . but now it's worse! . . . . With the state police marching alongside them, arm-in-arm so to speak, everything seems calm. . . . The rioters have gotten what they wanted all along: to back-down authority, 'The Man.' . . . So now more black communities are encouraged to riot and we'll have a dozen Fergusons all over at the same time, each and every week, mark my words. . . . Ironically, Steve, it turns out that peace is far, far worse than violence. . . Who would believe it?"


Above CAPTION based only on what I know these clowns would say if they thought they could get away with it. (I've not yet watched the news this morning.)

Mental water boarding for the whole family! . . .Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("My head is on my other foot" Hannity is saying: "What I want to know is how come everyone's so down on the police all of sudden! . . . I'm not saying that they're always right. . . . Heck they're all different individuals, so a couple are liable to slip up occasionally and accidently shoot someone like a kid or get a bit rough and beat up an elderly couple. . . . But when you see what they're up against!!! . . . Hell, unarmed teenagers, reporters, citizens filming their every move, a sullen citizenry, public criticism. . . . You name it! . . . I say we need more S.W.A.T units and heavier weaponry!! "


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


Slick as roadkill late on the afternoon of the second day. . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!

Rush ("Geez. . . . I can only wish I had a possum's equipment. . . . Why do you think I pray?" Limbaugh is saying: "Listen, everybody's blowing this all out of proportion . . . just like always. . . . I didn't actually say Robin Williams hung himself because liberal thinking is like racing down a dead-end street and into a blind alley, where all the demons in their heads pour out and run them down as self-loathing opens its ravenous maw and devours them, . . . BAM! . . . at least in so many words. . . . I mean, I don't think I used the word 'maw' even once."


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


Come CAPTION Dog T*rd, Ruler of Misapprensions, Master of the Unwise, Donald Trump!!!

Donald (That is not my butt, that's the way I like my pants!" Trump is saying: "So I say to my critics, 'Listen, you wanta know why everything is exactly how I see it? . . . I got no agenda is how! . . . That plus clean living and a solid mind . . . plus a great moral character . . . and I never do alcohol or drugs to fog my superior honesty and thought . . . Therefore, I only tell the truth, . . . So it follows that if what I said wasn't so, I'd be the first let you know. . . . And there's good logic. . . and of course God! . . and Capitalism , , , and so on!'. . . That usually shuts my critics right up! "

Here comes America's Nanny! . . . And the brush is out! . . . (Please CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!)

Bill ("I like mirrors all over every wall" O'Reilly is saying: "Look, . . . all these African-Americans and liberals got their heads filled with baby ducklings or something. . . . They hear 'unarmed youth exhibiting no resistance,' and they think they know what's happening. . . . Heck, he could be telling his friend to destroy the evidence of a terrorist plot! . . . He could be giving instructions to push a button to blow up a damn shadowing a large city! . . . The policeman could have saved multiple lives! . . . Anything's possible. . . . It's just that these liberals let their imaginations run away with them. . . . Jumping to stupid conclusions. . . Can you imagine such fools?"


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


In for a penny, in for a sweaty ton! . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!

Rush (Excellence-in-Bullshitting) Limbaugh just finished saying: "Listen, ladies and gentlemen, there's one reason and one reason only that Robin Williams killed himself: He woke up!! . . . That's right, he woke up! . . . Because when liberals wake up and see themselves as they truly are, they realized that there's only one thing they can do. . . . They can't clean up the mess. . . . Everything's gone too far already. . . . So the only question is how do they do it? . . . Ladies and gentlemen, you can expect a lot more of these all across the country, even thousands a day, as liberals open their eyes. . . . I'm trying to go easy here out of respect for the dead."


Above CAPTION based on the Media Matters story below:


Making his warm, psychotic nut. . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Keith Ablow!!!!

Keith (The Swine Gardener) Ablow is saying: "On the contrary, Harris, I'm not making things up.' . . . It's obvious to me and anyone who is looking that Michelle Obama porking up big time! . . . Look at that mouth! . . . Why do you think Almighty God made it that big??? . . . And while overeating might not damage the looks and effectiveness of a man (Look at Chris Christy and all he's gotten done!), it's going to make Michelle Obama look like livestock and entirely destroy her credibility as a spokesperson against obesity. . . . Try using your eyes and think sometime!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story:


"There is no sanity clause" (Chico Marx). . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Rod Wheeler!!!

Rod ("What keeps screaming silently in the middle of my head?" Wheeler is saying: "You bet, Peter, the rioters in Ferguson are people who voted for Obama. And what's more, when you read between the lines, these riots have been organized and planned by Obama all along by keeping these communities in poverty and ignorance and then stirring up their anger against decent society. . . . And he did this for one reason and one reason alone: more voters!!!! . . . It's logical, don't you see? . . . More looters, more voters! . . . Anyone should be able to see that."


Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


"Conscience for hire!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Tucker Carlson.

Tucker ("I never met a thought I couldn't take a wizz on" Carlson is saying: "Well, Elizabeth, the actual truth is that there are too few gun deaths in America compared to everything else! . . . Statistics show that in 2011, there were only 32,163 gun deaths in America which was a few hundred shy of the 32,479 automobile deaths, whereas heart disease, cancer and diseases account for tens of thousands more. . . . Bottom line: gun deaths count for less than 19% of all the deaths in America! . . . . Now if more households would keep loaded guns lying around, especially when they invite the neighborhood kids in for an impromptu party, why . . ."
