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).

"It slipped my mind." . . . Please come CAPTION Devin Nunes!!!!

Devin (The Ambulating Cloud) Nunes is saying: "It all just came back to me over breakfast this morning. . . . The reason I went to the White House that night was to flush out and expose a double agent who I'd duped into giving me classified information. . . . And to my surprise, there were actually two of them! . . . Why, the first thing the next morning I had to inform the President before these moles had released our nuclear codes and other top secret things. . . . It was a matter of utmost national emergency. . . . I just made up that other stuff to make the spies think I was going along with them . . . Until the nation was safe again. . . . And over my cornflakes this morning, I realized it was. . . . Why is that so hard to believe?"


Above CAPTION based on the following NY Times story:


"Black people don't know about the struggles of whites." Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("Why aren't you bagging groceries?" O'Reilly is saying: "Your average African American couldn't care less about my struggles going up. . . . They just want to call me a racist and blame everything on me. . . . But I'm the farthest thing from a racist. . . . Did I force black women to have babies out of wedlock? . . . Did I make their sons join gangs and kill innocent people in drive-by shootings? . . . Did I tell black men to abandon their families, rip people off with armed robberies and car-jackings, and then waste all their money on gambling and drugs? . . . . Of course I didn't. . . . I don't have a racist bone in my body!"

Lobotomies come in many flavors. . . . Please come CAPTION Roger Stone!!!

Roger ("Richard Nixon was the most honest individual I ever know next to myself." Stone is saying: "George, let's just step back and look at this objectively. . . . I said I wanted to testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee, and that should prove all the accusations about my collusion with Guccifer 2.0 are utterly baseless. . . . Why would I want to testify if I was guilty of anything? . . . It doesn't make any sense. . . I am only demanding immunity for my testimony as favor to my lawyer. . . . It seemed so important to him. . . . Poor guy, he's got a weak heart."

Above CAPTION based on the following story in The Huffington Post with a healthy clip:


"Giving Truth New Standards for Over 40 Years!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Jeanine Pirro!!!

Jeanine (Former Heart Donor) Pirro is saying: "Bret, that's incorrect. . . . I don't know who your sources are but I had no communication with the White House much less President Trump before I demanded Paul Ryan must go as the Speaker of the House. . . . The fact that The President tweeted everyone to watch me hours before was simply a coincidence. . . . I'll stake my reputation on it!"


Above CAPTION based on the following story from The Inquisitor:


"There, there. It'll be okay. Don't cry." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald (Spit-Up) Trump: "Can I stay home with you today? . . . I don' wanta do anything. . . . Where's my pacifier? . . . Waaa!"

"Listen, Nunes, this is going to be great!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump.

Donald ("Why do I have to do all the hard thinking?) Trump is saying: "Devin, I've got it. This is foolproof. . . . You announce to the press that you've seen evidence of intelligence gathering on me, then come over to the White House where we can have a light lunch and talk MBA and golf. . . . Then when you leave we'll have another press conference where you can hammer it in. . . . Say your sources are top secret or something. . . . Hell, you're the politician, make something up! . . . This can't fail, you'll see."


Above CAPTION based on the following MSNBC clip of Lawrence O'Donnell:


"A day without lies is like a corpse without flies." . . .Please come CAPTION Sean Spicer!!!

Sean (Layering it thicker and deeper for over half a year) Spicer is saying: "Actually Paul Manafort had a very insignificant role in the Trump campaign. . . . . I mean, we let him call himself the Campaign Chairman and kept him on for five months only because he was so good at getting coffee for the entire staff. . . . I know what you're thinking: What's so hard about that, . . . especially if it's all he had to do? . . . But I'm telling you, he was good. . . Very, very good! . . Why's that so difficult to believe?"


Above CAPTION based on Sp8icer's 3/20/17 press conference as covered Business Insider:


"Crooks, clowns, and con-men, what's the difference?" . . . Please come CAPTION Roger Stone!!

Roger (Toilet Heart) Stone "To be honest, Bert, I look forward to testifying in front of Congress. . . . Then I can tell them straight out that I had nothing to do with Russian hacking. . . . I wasn't colluding with Guccifer 2.0! . . . . We only e-mailed each other about chess and hockey. . . . . Once again, I'm the innocent party in all this. . . . Why does no one ever seem to believe me?"


Above CAPTION based on the following CBS story with a healthy clip:


"I'm not stupid like everybody says! . . . I'm smart." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Immoderation in all things" Trump is saying: "I don't know what you mean, Angela, when you say we're 'more different than I could ever imagine.' . . . I've got a great imagination. . . . The best! . . . Are we as different as The Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote? . . . . As Bugs and Daffy? . . . As Pepe Le Pew and Yosemite Sam? . . . My imagination would astound you."


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story with a healthy clip:


"Let them eat want ads!" . . . Please come CAPTION OMB Director Mike Mulvaney!!!!

Former heart donor Mike Mulvaney is saying: "Well, Chuck, I don't agree with your premise, that's all. . . . Cutting Meals on Wheels is, in fact, the most compassionate thing we can do!! . . . Having food come straight to their door robs seniors of initiative. . . . They just slump around all day watching soap operas. . . .Think of all the pride they would feel if they just got out of those motorized chairs and became productive citizens again. . . . Heck,with all the deportations of illegals, there will be planty of produce to pick this spring. . . . Why rob them of their dignity?"
