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).

In the beginning there was Adam, and Eve, and the serpent. . . . Please come CAPTION Ann Coulter!


Ann ("It's just an apple." ) Coulter is saying: "What can I tell you, Bill? Trump's right! . . . When he's talking about Mexican illegal immigrants, he's hit the nail hard on the head. . . . And hell no, it's not 'racist to point out what's obvious.' . . . Pedro is packing, pure and simple. He's raping little girls on both sides of the border. . . . His women are prostitutes with terrible diseases. . . . Statistics bear me out. . . . Just look them up! . . . . Sure, there might be one or two immigrants who want a better life in the United States, but the vast majority is composed of lawless scum. . . . Just how is it racist, I'd like to know, to point out that one simple fact?"


Above CAPTION based on the following NewsHounds story:


"I'm so normal, it makes me HOT!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Neil Cavuto!!

Neil (The Wall Street Rapper) Cavuto is saying: "Listen, you have to be some kind of abnormal freak to believe in climate change, pure and simple. . . . It's logical. . . . Only normal people can see the world as it is. . . . Two, there is no climate change in the world as it is. . . . Therefore only normal people know there's no such thing as climate change. . .See how easy it is? . . . And they want us to believe that they went to college. . . . Imagine!"


Above CAPTION based on the following NewsHounds story and Fox clip:


My sheets are at the laundry. . . .Please come CAPTION a "friend of the Klan"!!!!

This friend ("Only a real friend will knife you in the back and not twist the blade" of the Klan is saying: "Listen, Paula, first they'll insist the Confederate flag has to come down. . . Then they'll make us take down all the statues of brave Confederate generals. . . . After that they'll try to outlaw burning crosses. . . . And finally, they'll try to make nighttime lynching illegal! . . . Imagine!"

"Up is the new down if you turn it all around." . . . Please come CAPTION Kevin Jackson on Fox!!!

Kevin ("Selling my birthright? . . . You gotta be kidding. . . . I'm cashing in." Jackson is saying: "It should be obvious. The left wing press label Dylann Roof as a right-wing extremist because they don't want to own up to the fact the he was a left-wing nutcake! . . . I mean figure it out. . . . Roof was the product of a left-wing educational system. . . Roof was raised during a period dominated by the left-wing media. . . . Roof had probably National Public Radio brainwashing him since he was born. . . And to top it off, Roof watched films made in Hollywood. . . . Dylann Roof was obviously a left-wing zealot. . . . Where have I gone wrong?"


The above CAPTION is based on the following Fox clip on Media Matters:


He's such a tight-*ss, when he f*rts, only the dogs can hear! Please come CAPTION Tony Perkins!

Tony ("Today, Christ would be packing." Perkins is saying: "You're right, Megyn, the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage actually means less freedom in America. . . . No longer is a straight baker able to refuse to service a gay wedding (where he might even be asked to 'join in'). . . . No longer can a Christian barber refuse to cut the perfumed locks of some simmering sexual aberration. . . . No longer can a Catholic gun owner scare the piss out of a prancing queer by pointing his AK-47 at him . . . No longer can we deny inheritance benefits to some puff who will spend all the money on bath houses and Wesson Oil. . . . Well, you get point, Megyn. . . It sounds like the Supreme Court came down on the side of more freedom, but it really made the rest of us bound by the will of the fruitcakes!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Fox clip at Media Matters:


A tiny frog in a tiny pond. . . . Please come CAPTION Bobby Jindal!!!

Governor Bobby ("This lobotomy was the best idea I ever had!" Jindal is saying: "Calm down! . . . Calm down! . . . Someone mis-heard me to say I'd eliminate the Supreme Court. . . . Nothing could be farther from the truth. . . . That's just the left trying to paint me as a radical, right-wing idiot! . . . What I really said was we should privatize the Supreme Court, then we could make tax money off them (and they could put up little booths and stuff to sell things to the tourists, and a coffee shop, maybe some tanning beds or rides) instead of spending untold millions on them every year. . . . And if they were private, then they'd agree with us 95% of the time! . . . Or we could make it in their interest. . . . That's a win-win-win if thee ever was one! . . Just how is that so radical??"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks&Liars story:


"A black hole ain't got nothing on me!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Brian Kilmeade!!

Brian ("Rule one: fill the silence" Kilmeade just finished saying: "I'm going way out on a limb here, I know, but just let me make this one prediction, okay? . . . The next major natural disaster that happens in the United States will be directly the result of God's anger at what the Supreme Court did this last two days! . . . You're gonna be amazed when I'm right!!!"

"Next it'll be 2 kitties, a guy, and a high-speed blender!" Come CAPTION Fox's Martha MacCallum!!!

Martha MacCallum is saying: "They're leaving more out than they're saying, Greta. . . . What's to stop two guys, a horse, and a rust-colored old dog from Paris, Texas from falling in love and getting married? Does the Supreme Court say anything about that? . . . How about a discarded trailer-hitch, a ton of assorted roadkill, and a silverback? . . . What about a new lyric to the tune of "Get Your Hand Outta There," ten-thousand forensic photographs from the 1950s in Los Angeles, and an old stoner? . . . You see, Greta, all the things they left out! . . . It takes someone like me to see through this stuff, don't you knw?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters clip from Fox:


"Why the hell did we ever label it ObamaCare, anyway?" Please come CAPTION Justice Antonin Scalia!!!

Judge Anthony ("What part of 'f*ck you' don't you understand?" Scalia is saying: "Listen, upholding the constitutionality of subsidies in the Affordable Care Act is like sanctioning the holocaust or supporting terrorism, giving aid and comfort to this nation's enemies, or bombing day-care centers! . . . Some say I am given to hyperbole, . . . but you tell me that in a couple of months when the hoards are storming the ramparts of civilization!"


Above CAPTION based on the following DU thread:


General Hubbub speaks to the multitudes! . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("You want war? You got it. Now let me piss in your ear some more." O'Reilly is saying, "Listen, you incontinent, liberal morons, attacking America as racist makes just as much sense as attacking Fox News as biased! It's a traitorous act, pure and simple! . . . . So I'm going to war! . . . Taking no prisoners! . . . Telling it just how it is! . . . I'll be a machine gun of truth, the mustard gas of Christ, the scud missile of righteousness, the hydrogen bomb of God's wrath! . . . First, let's dispel the notion that Fox is militaristic and always on the offensive. . . ."
