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).

"'No' means 'no,' Bret, except . . .": Please come CAPTION Joe Manchin!!!

Joe ("After all, it is my ball" ) Manchin is saying: "Absolutely! . . . 'No' means 'no,' Bret, and it will always and forever mean 'no' . . . at least until I can string them along with another 'maybe' or 'that's interesting,' or 'we'll just have to check the numbers.'"

"The truth is just a lie put on inside-out." . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker Carlso is saying: "Now hold on just a minute, Sandra. We don't have a vaccine mandate here at Fox. I repeat, there's no vaccine mandate at Fox. There are suggestions, of course. They suggest you get a vaccine or you shouldn't come in to the studio. They suggest Fox's security employees block admittance for unvaccinated employees. And they suggest that if you don't get the vaccine you should work somewhere else. And in that case they suggest you be taken off of payroll. . . . But mandates? . . . There are absolutely no mandates here at Fox.

(Satire alert.)

"We don't burn books in Florida." . . . . Please come CAPTION Gov. Ron DeSantis!!!!

Ron DeSantis is saying: "I'm vehemently against burning books, but if anyone publishes a so-called Woke text or a book on Critical Race Theory and tries to sent it into our state, that person had better be prepared to meet a Florida Trooper at the state line! . . . Let freedom reign!"

The gleam on a frozen turd. . . . Please come CAPTION Ted Cruz!

Ted ("I even lie in my dreams" ) Cruz is saying: "It's times like these, times of crisis, that bring out the character of people. . . . It like during the electricity failure in Texas last winter. That was a terrible crisis that had host people worrying about their personal survival. . . . But I threw caution to the wind and, unconcerned about my personal safety, ran down to the Yucatan to check on the poor people of Cancun. . . . No Democrats were worried about them, I can tell you that!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks & Liars story:


"Capt. Crunch has nothing on me." . . . Please come CAPTION exPresidented Trump!!!!

exPresidented Trump is saying "Listen, if you want to know the truth, I saved hundred, perhaps thousands, of lives on January 6th by keeping the National Guard from responding while the Capitol Police were viciously attacking the peaceful (well largely peaceful except for Antifi and FBI provocateurs) protestors. . . . With the National Guard the place would have erupted. . . . Hell, we probably wouldn't have a Capitol Building any longer. . . . January 6th would have been a bloodbath the likes of which nobody can possibly imagine if I hadn't refused to act. . . Now do you get it?"

The original Nerf Ninja Turtle. . . . Please come CAPTION Mitch McConnell!!!

Mitch ("It's only fair." ) McConnell is saying: "Our country is under an existential threat by the Democrats. . . . It they get their way, more people will be encouraged to vote and every vote will be counted. But the capper is this: states will have to report that vote to the Congress. They won't have a choice. . . . Which means, in effect, the Republicans won't stand a chance. . . . Not only is it not fair, but it will mean the end of democracy as we know it."

"Boys will be boys after all." Please come CAPTION the Crumbleys!!!

The Crumbley's press statement: "The stories picturing us as uncaring parents are absolutely false. We brought James up to respect the second amendment. So it's not our fault. If there would have been a 'good guy with a gun' this wouldn't have happened. We're confident the justice system will treat us fairly so we can start our Good Guy with a Gun Foundation, an idea President Trump has already blessed. We urge fellow citizens to visit our GoFundMe page It'sAllClearBro.com"

"And here's a little something for the Jan. 6 Committee." Please come CAPTION Jeffrey Clark!!!

Jeffrey ("I thought I was supposed to just 'game it out,' like in law school" ) Clark is saying: "What I did was entirely legal. That's why I'll plea the fifth!"

"Too many people are pretending Covid's a big deal." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!

Ainsley Earhardt is saying: "These school boards don't seem to realize how upset parents can get if you make their kids wear masks. The parents are also outraged when they close down the schools because of a Codvid outbreak and force their children to return to virtual learning. . . . And when you quarantine students because of these outbreaks, the parents go absolutely crazy. . . . Why can't these school boards just get it right for once?"

Brian Kilmeade adds: "Maybe the answer is to get rid of Covid tests."

Steve Doocy is thinking: "If we get sued, I'll blame these two."

"Hail to Corn Beef" . . . Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-PresiDented Trump is saying: "I'd love to see the Libs when they find out I've been re-installed on my throne."


Above CAPTION demonstrates the accuracy of Mike Lindell's prophecy that Trump will be reinstalled on Friday 13, 2021.
