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).

The misappropriaton of the American spirit. . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Senility is simply a state of mind" ) Trump is saying: "You bet, only the late, great Abe Lincoln could be more presidential than me . . . Like when he cut down the cherry tree and ate the pie but wouldn't lie about it. . . . Even then, when he was a kid, he was presidential! . . . Do I know my history or what? . . . . Well, I might not make it at ol' Abe's level, but if I ever split a rail, I'd wear wooden teeth, if you know what I mean. . . . And another thing: the doctors are all wrong, what they're saying about me, especially when they think I can't hear them. . . . Russia has trained mice to listen at the walls and other mice to transcribe. . . . My new Director of Homeland Security will be the greatest of all time, I guarantee. I've just have to make up my mind who. . . . My dad was right, the wrong lubricant can really mess you up, 'Put you off your cheeseburgers.' . . . How 'bout that Bobby Knight, folks? . . . We should sterilize the leaders of M-15. . . . That would teach them. Besides, current history tells us we gotta be careful for the gene pool."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's increasing irrationality, and articulating tantrum of the mind, Aug. 4, 2017.

We're going to have to wake up soon to what we're actually dealing with.

"Feel free to ask anything!" . . . Please come CAPTION Stephen Miller!!!

Stephen ("This is where everybody else gets off and I get on" ) Miller is saying: "Acosta, you ignorant slut. . . . I know I said to ask anything you want, but that is the deepest steaming pile of horsesh*t that I've ever heard coming out of an adult's mouth. . . . In a mature, intelligent society, that question itself would be grounds for immediate sterilization. . . . Since when is asking a question like taking a wet, hot dump? . . . This job should come with a horsewhip and a post! . . . Next. . . ?"


Above based on the exchange at the WH briefing on 8.2.17 as covered by The Washington Post with a story and video:


The Grifter-in-Chief! . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("You won't believe this, but . . ." ) Trump is saying: "And John, just to get on the right foot, let me say right now I'll never hold anything back from you or lie to you! . . . That's because I feel the basis of any good relationship is honesty, pure and simple. . . . Like that Boy Scout motto, 'I promise to be honest,' or whatever. . . . In fact the leader of all the Boy Scouts, the Chief I guess, just called me this morning to say how great my speech was last week. . . . The greatest ever, he said. . . . In fact, he's proposing that they give a merit badge to the boys who can recite the entire thing. . . . That's really great. Simply unbelievable!!"

"This guy's going to be a push over!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("I love to hold my own hand too." ) Trump just finished saying: "And remember, John, just because you were a Marine General and your entire life has been dedicated to serving and protecting this nation, that doesn't mean you gotta stick your nose into the sewer like fake news does. . . . I mean, if you come across something that looks like my orders from Putin, that's just him playing. We do that sometimes. That's our way. . . You needn't say anything. . . . That might undermine our efforts for greater diplomacy."

John Kelly is thinking: "What have i gotten myself into?"

"Leader of the Support Group for Former Trump Employees." Please come CAPTION Anthony Scaramucci!!!

Anthony (The Fig) Scaramucci is saying: "Hey, give me a break. . . . At least I didn't have to empty out my office."
