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).

"Every time a bell rings, I tear off an angel's wings." . . . Please come CAPTION Dick Cheney!!!

Dick ("Traitor to Human Consciousness" Cheney is saying: "Listen, James, it amuses me to hear what Obama says sometimes, it really does. . . . In that same interview he said that our administration was responsible or ISIS by needlessly invading Iraq. . . . It's like a demolition derby on the truth! . . . Next thing he'll try to tell us is that no WMD's were ever found. . . Obama cracks me up!"

Who needs asbestos underware???? . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("Is that my falafel?" O'Reilly is thinking: "Wow. I'm going to slay them tonight. They'll be in the palm of my hand. . . I'll tell them about Oswald's buddy killing himself while looking me straight in the eyes and saying 'Now, you'll never know' after I tell them about how I jumped out of the motorcade and tried to see who was behind the grassy knoll and got cooled-cocked, knocked straight out . . . and the next thing I know I'm waking up on the grass and someone is crying and saying Kennedy is dead, . . right before I ran to the hospital and tried to give him CPR. . . . Wow, what a time that was! . . . These guys are gonna love me!"

"Evolution is just a word!" . . . Please come CAPTION Scott Walker!!!

Scott ("This is your mind on crud" Walker is saying: "Why do people think a university education is so great? . . . People pay thousands of dollars and go into massive debt just to get a piece of paper. . . . And then, believe it or not, they think they're smart. . . But what's so smart about paying off college loans for decades? . . . . If I'm elected President, I'd let them just buy the piece of paper. . . . That way a college education would only cost a few cents . . . and, of course, shipping and handling."

A snake with legs! . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!

Bill ("God's gonna get you for this!" O'Reilly is saying: "Listen MSNBC, . . . I'm only going to say this once. . . . When I say 'literal' I don't mean 'actual.' . . . I mean 'figuratively literal.' . . . Get it? . . . Next time, buy a good dictionary!"

"And I'll tell you no lies. . . ." Please come CAPTION Bill ("It's the literal truth!") O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("Remember, the truth stops here!" O'Reilly is saying, "Oh heavenly Father, what is wrong with these pathetic idiots?? Why can't they believe me? They say I couldn't be in Florida and Texas at the same time. They say I couldn't have seen the nuns killed. They say I wasn't in a war zone. They say I wasn't under siege in the LA riots. . . . Next thing they'll say I can't walk on water. . . . Where do they get this crap???"
