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).

Sonambulism Yesterday, Today, and Forever After! Please come CAPTION Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL)!

Rep. Matt ("My doctor said a lobotomy would be redundant" ) Gaetz is saying: "Jon, it's worse than a coup that's brewing inside the highest reaches of our government or assassination plots being planned by our law enforcement agencies to take Trump out. . . . It's worse than the armed rebellion that's sure to come if we can't stop it in its tracks. . . . It's even worse even Armageddon and the extinction of the human race. . . . It's deep-state, secret liberals who insist on going by the letter of the law!"


Above CAPTION based on the following story/clip at Media Matters:


With all the subtly of a rabid ferret. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump Jr.!!!

Donald ("God wouldn't have invented elephant guns if he didn't want us to shoot them" ) Trump Jr. is saying: "Listen, there's nothing I love more than the Constitution, absolutely nothing! But sometimes to save it, you have to be able to look beyond it. . . . And to act! . . . So when you find a criminal cabal saturating the Deep State, and you can't get at these traitors any other way, well . . . do we have to mind every little thing the courts might say or every tiny nuance in the letter of the law? . . . Don't get me wrong, I love the Constitution, I really do."


Above CAPTION based on this bozo's speech to young conservative activists in Florida on Dec. 19, 2017, as covered by CNN:


Playing Russian Roulette with a hand grenade. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("Doubling down on zero equals two" ) Trump is saying: "Hello, Vlad? . . . Listen, those orphans are coming home, if you know what I mean. . . Then they'll be clear of debt, right? . . . Those notes they signed and pictures you took of them, can all burn, right? A Moscow bonfire! . . . I mean, we can't have our orphans in debt, can we? . . . . And maybe the next time we can figure out how to be alone together, you can use you inside voice, okay?"

"So many lies. So little time." . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("The others kids used to make fun of me until I bit off a classmate's ear" ) Hannity is saying: "You're right: the only way to uphold the rule of law in our country is to investigate and prosecute individuals at the F.B.I., especially James Comey, and stop the Special Counsel's illegal witch hunt! . . . I love my country like you, Newt, and care about the law above all else."


Above CAPTION based n the following clip link on Crooks & Liars:


"Let me tell you what sick really is!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Laura Ingraham.

Laura ("Ann Coulter is trying to rip me off" ) Ingraham is saying: "After all, Bill, being molested didn't hurt anyone's Christmas. . . . If anything, the girls got more gifts from their uncles or whoever."

"I'd whip Kelly's ass in a moron contest!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("There's a blister on my twitter finger" ) Trump is thinking: "Let's see. . . . John said I can't tweet about Russia, collusion, the investigation, Rosenstein's lying to congress yesterday, or even firing that little rat-f*ck, Comey. . . . So, okay, here I go: 'If certain people throw stones at my glass house, they'd better get ready for fire and fury the likes of which the world has never known.' . . . There. He can't object to that!"

Here come the fudge! . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Judge Jeanine Pirro!!!

Judge Jeanine ("I'll crush your n*ts in a vice for starters, spud!" ) Pirro is saying: "And it's now clear that Mueller and Comey were running a criminal cabal out of the Justice Department, making us look like some third world dictatorship. . . . So I say, round them all up, frog-march them out of F.B.I. Headquarters in shackles and cuffs, broad daylight, and put them on public trial. Make a big deal out of it to show we won't stand for illegality. . . . and to show the rest of the world that we're not like some banana republic or Latin America thugocracy!"


Above CAPTION based on this clip linked at Crooks & Liars:


"Selma was historic. It was before color t.v." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("I've never been for lynching. It doesn't have to be so public." ) Trump is saying: It's such an honor to be here at the opening of the Civil Rights Museum in Mississippi. . . .Few people know this because I don't spread it around, but Martin Luther King, Jr., is one of my favorite people of all time, just after Jesus and Lincoln. . . . In fact I've honored Martin Luther King, Jr. Day since I was a little boy, . . . believe me!"

"They could have shared." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Con(tributor) Ben Ferguson!!!

Ben ("They're just pretending to be offended" ) Ferguson is saying: "I think John Lewis, who I have the greatest respect for by the way, missed a golden opportunity by not coming to the opening of The Civil Rights Museum in Mississippi just because Trump would be there. . . . He could have shared experiences with the President. . . . The Congressman could have told the President about Selma, and the President could have told the Congressman what the Civil Rights marches looked like from a dorm room in a North Eastern boarding school."

Above CAPTION based on the following Fox clip linked at Media Matters:


"Look, Mom, no drugs!". . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!
