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).

Journal Archives

"Even the floor's above my head. That's what Dad used to say." Come CAPTION Fox's Brian Kilmeade!!

Brian (Taking a bite out of cultural intelligence for over three decades) Kilmeade is saying: "You're right, Congressman DeSantis, there never should have been an intervention in the first place. . . . Short of that, stop it now! . . . I applaud you, I really do. But I don't think your bill is going to pass. . . . How about a bill that makes it illegal for any federal official to say the words 'Trump' and 'Russia' in the same paragraph?"


Above CAPTION based upon Media Matters story and Fox & Friends clip:


"Articulating the void for over 68 years!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald (Rancid Flood of Words)Trump is saying: "Wow, what a turnout! . . . You should all be very, very proud of yourselves. . . . I mean there's a lot of other places you could have spent your Tuesday afternoon, but you chose to spend it with me, with us, all of us together. . . . . And that's not just because businesses and schools are closed. . . . It's because you believe in our movement which just keeps growing and growing. . . . Wow!. . . Like on the cap 'U' 'S' 'A' and '45' on both sides. . . . It's great! . . . . So, thanks for coming out, and . . . oh yeah, too bad about the hurricane."


Above based on Trump's address to the crowd at a fire station in Corpus Christi 8.29.17, as covered by PBS:


"A broken nail can ruin a week." . . . Please come CAPTION Melania Trump!!

Melania ("I'm not so special. There are one or two others like me." )Trump is thinking: "I don't care if he saves the world, I'm still not letting him touch me!"

"Ever hear of the 25th Amendment?" . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!

Mike (The Silver Snake) Pence is saying: "Don't worry, Donald. . . . Go down to Texas. . . . They love you down there. . . . And while you're down there why not visit the Bush ranch? . . . . Get some photos. . . . And San Antonio has some of the best restaurant in the state. It would take months to try them all, but everybody here feels you should be allowed to try. . . . So, take your time. . . . And after Harvey's gone you can take in some Gulf fishing. . . . They say it's great after a storm like this. . . . Don't worry about a thing. . . . We've got it covered here."

"Secretary of Fake, if you ask me!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Even I wish I was me." ) Trump is thinking: "Wish I didn't have to wait until Friday to fire Tillerson. . . . He's really pissing me off."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's exasperation with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as reported by Mediaite in this DU link:


"Hurricanes are bad." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald Trump is thinking: "I'm only supposed to be tweeting about Harvey but that's boring and Kelly is in the can so . . . 'Mueller needs to investigate Crooked Hillary and the bags of cash she sent to Iran to distract from Obama's birth countrydebate.' . . . There. . . . When Mueller comes out and sees that he can't be mad. . . . It's 'measured and to-the-point,' just like he says he wants."

America's Favorite Malignant Tumor. . . . Please come CAPTION Joe Arpaio!!!

Sheriff Joe ("Anything sharp in your pockets?" ) Arpaio is saying: "Okay, Jeff, here's your 'take-away.' . . . With my pardon, President Trump has struck a historic blow for American Freedom. . . . Law enforcement should now feel free to stop and search and detain and arrest the kind of people who commit crimes. . . . The American flag of freedom is flying high once more!"

"Willie Geist doesn't know what he's talking about!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (Even my gold is gold-plated" ) Trump is tweeting: "Gen. Kelly doing fantastic job. Tremendous spirit and talent in WH. Donít believe Fake News like M. Joe. They tell lies on top of lies. That's why I never watch them."


Above CAPTION based on (in part, in fact, plagiarized from) an early morning Trump tweet (8.26.17) which directly contradicts what Willie Geist had said moments before on Morning Joe, as detailed in this DU post:


"You can't do that. I didn't ride in on a horse." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("You're evicted!" ) Trump is saying: "And just because I sometimes use a teleprompter, the dishonest media is saying there are two Trumps: the scripted Trump and the real Trump, Jekyll and Hyde if you will. But I'm here to tell you there is only ONE TRUMP: ME!!!! . . . And I have no patience with that other Trump, the scripted one, who seems to think he can take over. . . . But he can't. . . . I won't let him see my dreams at night so he'll never be able to find the controls. . . . Tough luck, loser!"

"What a crock. . . It's just an orange blob." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald Trump just finished saying: "Eclipse my ass! . . . I can't see a damned thing!"
