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).

Voted 'Most Likely to Deceive'! . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I wouldn't let Attila be my houseboy" Trump is saying: "The problem with Scalia was that he was a liberal simp, a weak, far-left-winger who made everyone think he was an arch conservative."

The Walk-Around Coma. . . Please come CAPTION the Real Alex Jones!!

Alex ("Mom caught me sniffing her panties, but I told her I was investigating something big, really big!" Jones just finished saying: "Gary, you're a courageous hero for writing this book. I hope you don't have any accidents, if you know what I mean. . . . I don't want to get into speculation, but it sounds like the Clintons have an entire squad of hit-men on retainer."


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters piece with a handsome audio clip:


To Dream the Impossible Scream. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!


Donald ("when has thinking ever helped?" Trump is saying: "Waterboarding isn't enough. . . . It's not even a decent beginning! . . . We have to get serious with these monsters. . . . We have to learn how to do the unthinkable. . . . And I'm the perfect guy to figure out what the unthinkable is! . . . I have the right kind of brains for it."


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


"I'd waterboard my mother!" . . . Please come CAPTION Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany!!

Kayleigh ("So what if their hair gets a little messed up?" McEnany is saying: "When you get right down to it, torture is just a type of insistent discomfort. . . . It's only a bit more than a mosquito bite because with a mosquito bite you can not think about it. . . . So, it's a type of discomfort you have to think about, like a baby crying in K-Mart. . . . Does that make sense?"


Above CAPTION based on McEnany's appearance on One-on-One 6.63.16:


"Racism is just another '-ism.'" . . . Please come CAPTION Trump Surrogate Howie Carr!!

Howie ("I brush my teeth with a chainsaw and floss with a flamethrower" Carr is saying: ". . . I should clarify that: I meant no disrespect to American Indians when I used a war whoop just then to mock Elizabeth Warren. . . . And so what if I did? . . . I mean, who cares? . . . What are they going to do about it. . . . We squashed those drunken red heathens once before, . . . and now there are a lot more of us!!! . . . But I mean them no disrespect of course."


Above CAPTION based on Carr's juvenile war whoop while making reference to Elizabeth Warren 6.29.16 in Bangor, Maine, as in this Media Matters clip:


The Great Uniter! . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Why am I always smelling sulfur?" Trump is saying: "I'd love to unite the Party. . . . Really I would. . . . I'm a live-and-let-live kind of guy, . . . willing to forget and forgive. . . But when those sniveling, backbiting primary opponents of mine (one, by the way, is a great Midwestern state's current governor whose last name sounds like someone trying to say something--probably very stupid--with a mouthful of sauerkraut, and spitting half of it out) sign a pledge to endorse the primary winner (and that was me in case you were wondering), and then they won't give me their support, . . . well, that's almost criminal. . . . They should be looking at some real time. . . . So, I'd love to unite the Republican Party, but you got to see the kind of slime I'm trying to work with."


Above CAPTION based on remarks Trump made at a rally in Bangor, Maine, 6.30.16. Vid. the following CNN clip:


"Your nightmares are my w*tdreams!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Satan's a softie" Trump is saying: "I'm not suggesting we become barbarians. . . . On the contrary. . . . But if I'm elected president, waterboarding will just be the first step in the process, like cleaning them up for the next, when things start to get really interesting, if you know what I mean."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's reaction to the terrorist attack in Turkey 6.28.16 while in Ohio, covered by WCPO in Cincinnati:


"First, I'll re-negotiate gravity, then I'll work on the tides." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("Attila was a wanker" Trump is saying: "Our founding fathers valued manufacturing and made great trade deals. . . . They hammered plowshares out of steel and swapped beads for land with the Indians. . . . A Trump presidency will bring back those good old days! . . . That I can promise you!!!"


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks and Liars story with a ink to the full transcript of Trump's economic speech 6.28.16:


Gary Byrne: "What I saw would blind the Pope." . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("My head is filled with gunpowder" Hannity is saying: "Gary, you say you are absolutely certain that Hillary and Bill held unspeakable orgies in the White House basement where human sacrifices were performed to Satan. . . . Yet the Secret Service claims you are making all of this up, . . but as we know: they're working for Obama. . . . Your story has the hard, clear ring of truth to me!!! . . Especially the part about Satan and Hillary."


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story:


"I'm one-million-and-ten precent American!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!!

Donald ("Daffy used to give me the creeps" Trump: "I'm not asking for a purity test, Bill, far from it. . . . I want everyone to say what they want. . . . I'm just saying that anyone who doesn't endorse me shouldn't be able speak at the convention. . . . Not even to reporters."
