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).

Donald ("Even my hair has a zip-code!" Trump is saying: "Of course, Steve, I'm serious about running for President. . . . I got teams of polling experts staked out in each state, sometimes in several key counties, and they all tell me I'm going to be HUGE!!! . . . I'll be like Ronald Reagan, and Frank Sinatra, and Cassius Clay all rolled into one. . . . I'll not only be The Greatest, I'll be The King of all The Greatests!!!!!! . . . Heck, it would be crazy not to run."

“In my dreams all see is a black hole in a blind alley.” Please come CAPTION Govonor Mike Spense!!!





Governor Mike (“Carrot Top is my favorite philosopher”) Spense is saying: “Tony, I have no idea why people like you are giving me so much backlash. . . .This morning thousands of Indiana citizens have even more freedom than they had last night and no one will be able to discriminate against them for exercising that freedom. . . . I thought you liberals are supposed to be against discriminationn. . . . Ever look up ‘hypocrisy’ in the dictionary? . . . Geez.”

Gretchen ("I had a gay friend once. It didn't take." Carlson is saying: "Just what gives anybody the right to tell a citizen of Indiana that he can't discriminate all he wants!!!. . . . That sounds like a hate crime to me!!!"

"The mind's a terrible thing to baste." . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!



Tucker (a hot warm dump in the middle of his cranium) Carlson is saying: "Listen, just because my brother Buckley described de Blasio's spokesperson Amy Spitalnick as a 'LabiaFace,' doesn't make that a sexist comment. Back were we come from in San Diego, a 'labia' was a nickname for a peach. They just forget to put it in any books. . . . So it wasn't sexist at all. . . . He was saying she looked like a peach. . . . How is that so hard to believe?""

"My brain's stuck on jam!" . . . Please come CAPTION Rick Santorum!!



Rick ("It's your nickel" Santorum is saying: "It was all a simple and obvious test, just to show lame-stream media how grossly unfair they are to Republicans. When I called candidate Obama an "anit-war, government nig- . . ." they all thought I was going to say a certain word, and we all know what that word is. . . But I was just testing them . . . I was really going to call him an "anti-war, government nickelodeon" on account of the cheap tunes he kept repeating back then. . . . What's so hard to believe about that? . . . Geez! I don't know how my critics come up with this crap sometime!"

Scott ("Clear as the glass in my sister's lobotomy" Walker is saying: "Listen, Steve, just because I'm anti-abortion, want to close down Planned Parenthood, scoff at family leave requests in worker negotiations, and am against so-call equal-pay laws, doesn't mean I'm anti-woman! . . . Far from it! . . . I'm pro-baking and washing dishes, for instance, keeping the baby clean, and even bridge clubs. . . . I don't know where my critics come up with their ideas sometimes!"

"'An ambulating lobotomy.' What do you suppose Dad meant by that?" . . . Come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!



Sean ("Master of Quaun Dick Doo" Hannity if saying, "Are you kidding? I'm extremely open minded. Yesterday a caller asked if I would consider someone an American if they didn't believe in blasting Iran back into the stone age. . . . Well, I told him I'd have to think about it. . . . And I'm still thinking. . . . But that's the point, right? . . . I'm able to consider these things. . . . If you don't see that, you're a moron."

"A gun without ammo is like a bull moose without a d*ck!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Palin!!!



Sarah ("Who's afraid of climate change? It's just two words!" Palin is saying: "Listen, my critics call me an airhead. . . .
