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).

"Who cares? They're just words." . . . Please come CAPTION RNC's Chair: Reince Priebus!!

Reince ("I've got your facts, right here," grabbing his crotch) Priebus is saying: "You're right, Sean, the CNBC debate was far too biased, superficial and agenda-driven. More like a far-left propaganda machine than a real debate. We need more objective and substantial moderators like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and yourself, Sean. . . . The nation deserves a meaningful debate with serious and intelligent moderators."


CAPTION is nearly a plagiarism of what Ted Cruz said and Priebus agreed with. See Fox News:


"A high colonic makes me feel The Spirit!" . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!

Ben ("He who casts the first stone is worth a bird in the bush" ) Carson is saying: "Let me tell you one thing, Robert. If I win, The Holy Spirit will find its home once again in the White House. In fact, I'm planning on giving Christ the entire second floor which I'll paint all cloud-white inside and install stained glass windows and pipe in soft organ music and hymns. And everyday I'll go up there and just sit, listening as He tells me what to do. . . . Just like He already told me I will have to attack all Muslims who mistake their faith and religion for a means of governance. . . . You see God can't stand fanatics and wants me to wipe them out!!"

"Have I told you about my brother?" . . . Please come CAPTION Jed Bush!!

Jeb ("How is it every time I look in the mirror I'm there? Except when I turn off the lights." Bush is saying: "Of course I'll stand by that, Jim. . . . In fact I'll sake my credibility on it. . . . It's just as ridiculous to blame my brother's administration for 9/11 as it is to blame it for preemptively beginning the Iraqi War that cost this country a fortune in lives and treasure and has profoundly destabilized the Middle East, . . . but Benghazi is another matter. You see . . ."


CAPTION based on the following story by Media Matters on Crooks and Liars:


Heee's Baaaack! . . . Please come CAPTION W., ol' Numbn*ts!!!!!

W. ("They call me Numbn*ts because they're jealous" is saying: "Listen. Listen. Listen. . . . You just don't know Ted Cruz like I do! . . . . You know what he did? . . . what he did? . . . .You're not going to believe what he did. . . . He really did. . . . He borrowed one of my favorite books of all times ever and for all over the whole world and when I made him return it, . . . Do you know what? . . . You won't believe what he did. . . He colored in the whole thing! . . . Every single picture! . . . Every one! . . . And he couldn't even stay in the lines!"


The above CAPTION is very loosely based on the following Crooks & Liars story:


Let's hope the Benghazi report is not scratch-and-sniff! . . . Please come CAPTION Trey Gowdy!!!

Trey ("I love my spastic proctologist" Gowdy is saying: "Chuck, I certainly do object when anyone characterizes our committee as political, mean-spirited and vindictive. . . . That's utterly ridiculous! . . . Anyone who thinks it is simply "mean spirited" or "vindictive" shows either he doesn't know the language or the Republican membership of our committee! . . . Or both! "

"Mars calling Jupiter." . . . Please come CAPTION Wayne Simmons on Cavuto!!!!

Wayne ("I was an Albatross Scout. That's one step higher then Eagle." Simmons is saying: "Damn right I'll stand behind that! . . . Listen, Neil, if Obama isn't a shameless coward, hater of America, destroyer of values, Islamic pimp, incestuous, peace pissing Communist and secret member of NAMBLA, then you can't believe a single thing I've ever said! . . . How's that?"


Neil actually apologized (see link below) for having Simmons on as an expert but disavowed none of this crack-pot's opinions, much less his "facts." A different pocket of Hell, perhaps, but they will at least be neighbors some day . . . and for quite a while.


"I still have my decoder ring!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Wayne Simmons!!!

Wayne ("I gotta badge for every day of the week" Simmons is saying: "That's right, Bret, just because we haven't found any WMDs still doesn't mean there aren't any. . . . As a matter of fact, my super-sagacious powers and data-analysis capacities which I developed in Depth Squad, The C.I.A's most elite unit, where we were water-boarded just to wash our face in the morning, tell me that Iraq remains saturated with nuclear weapons, many of them poised and pointed right now at America. . . . I'll stake my reputation on it! . . . Hell, I'll stake your reputation on it as well!"


Above CAPTION based on current events, well put in the following Media Matters story:


Absent while on duty. . . . Please come CAPTION Kevin McCarthy!!!

Kevin ("Mouthful of marbles" McCarthy is saying: "Listen, Todd, I appreciate that, but I'm dropping out of the solely race-contest for speaker while counting out good considering thought-through reasons: first, term limits are an ideal form of service yet in practice unreciprocated; the progression of this country's history-line rectifies a sanctifying term of engagement with a less demonstrating oracle-body; and my high intelligence might be a draw-back, turning members off to their occasions for governance and allegiance to their very consequence. . . . See?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


"Those minds at Sesame Street, I mean . . . Wow!" . . . Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!

Ben ("Fox News is like beacon of light in the desert" Carson is saying: "Listen, guys, I wouldn't have let the Oregon gunman just stand me up and shoot me, I'd do something like jump into the air and give him a power kick to the jaw as I sail over him, or grab a lighter and a can of hairspray and turn it into a flamethrower like on James Bond, or have a guy in a helicopter toss me a grenade launcher, or . . . .Well, you guys get the idea. . . . We need to come up with mature, level-headed, thoughtful solutions to these problems."


Above CAPTION based on the Fox clip and story at Huffington Post:


Rat's *ss crazy, you bet! . . . Please come CAPTION Lou Dobbs!!!

Lou ("Cotton Mather is my favorite philosopher" Dobbs is saying: "You can draw a direct line of between 1963 when school prayer was outlawed and the mass shootings on campuses today. . . . If you kick God out of the classroom, guess who comes in??? . . . And who does Satan bring with him? . . . . You guessed it: some nut with half-a-dozen-guns, twenty clips, and an issue, thatís who! . . . . Name me one school shooting before '63! . . . . Then look at today! . . . Why does no one seen the connection but me?"
