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 ("Don't try to out-shake my hand!" Trump is saying: "Mike, what the hell do you mean when you say you'll 'consider a pardon'? . . . And why do you have to know my 'full financial picture first'?"

"Pardon me." . . . Please come CAPTION Jared Kushner!!!

Jared ("Now I'm really *#%*!!" Kushner is thinking: "And now he says he has a new plan, telling everyone we were doing secret counter-intelligence work to see just how far the Russians would go to undermine our democracy. . . . It can't lose, he says. A cinch. . . . He says the same thing every time."

Sean ("Feathers for a pillow / Rock for a heart" Hannity is saying: "And so my wife and I are more than happy to be going on vacation until Tuesday following Memorial Day. . . . This trip was long scheduled and has nothing to do with Fox trying to harness my righteous indignation and aggressive exposure of Hillary Clinton's brazen murder of one of her staffers so that we would blame the leaks to Wikileaks on Russian hacking. . . . No, the network respects my strong and direct manner. . . . The fact that we will be flying standby is only because my wife forgot to book our flights, . . . and I'm not sure where we'll be staying because it appears our hotel lost our reservations. . . . But believe me, we've planned this trip for ages. . . . Of course we might really like it and stay a little longer."


Above CAPTION based on the following story as reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer and Variety:

So what if one of my medals is a Israeli traffic officer pin sold on e-Bay? . . . I don't wear it to claim honors I don't deserve, but to show solidarity with all types of officers world wide. . . . And about the Seal-Team 6 metal, . . . heck, I was in the Navy too."

"Taking a dump on the truth 24/7!" . . . Please come CAPTION Trump's Jeffrey Lord!!!

Jeffrey ("Trump gives me a reach-around when I've been good" Lord is saying: "I'll tell you exactly what I'd say, Anderson, if you told me the President took a dump on his desk. . . . I'd ask, 'How do you know? . . . Where you there?' . . . Then I'd want to know who leaked the information and why aren't they being investigated? . . . Then I'd say 'So what? . . . I'll bet a lot of busy executive take a dump on their desks. . . . It saves time.' . . Or maybe the bathroom was busy and Trump isn't the kind of guy who likes to disturb anyone. . . .Then I'd remind you of the electoral college. . . . Then . . ."

Or just offered him some top class tailored suits on the side. It sure looks like he needs them . . . . But I'll bet some jackass would go and call that illegal. . . . Geez."
