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).

"Good Christians don't lie. So how could that be false?" . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!

Mike ("I'll put Christ back in Capitalism!" ) Pence is saying: "Donald Trump is a believer and so am I. And since believers don't lie, that's the God's honest truth. You have to do your logic."


Above CAPTION Based on the following story in The Christian Post:


"Michael Flynn is a true American hero!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean (With an I.Q. the level of roadkill) Hannity is saying: "So let me get this straight. Mueller and Comey have been and still are the heads of a cabal inside The Justice Department whose sole purpose is to undermine American values and hand this great country over to our enemies. . . . For this they have hired criminal prosecutors who suborn the perjury of anyone they have their sights on. . . . And they usually focus on the people who most clearly stand for American values. . . . Therefore they went after Michael Flynn, a true American hero. . . . Makes perfect sense."


Above CAPTION based on the following Hannity panel covered by Media Matters with a healthy clip:


"News is a flirty business." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Geraldo Rivera!!!

Geraldo (The mustache with its own timezone) Rivera is saying: "Just because I defended the ability of men to make a little pass at women in the workplace, doesn't at all mean that I think women are lining up to tell their stories about me. . . . Why would anyone think that?"


Above CAPTION based on this bozo's tweeting in defense of Matt Lauer as noted in this story in Entertainment:


Here's the actual tweet:

Sad about @MLauer great guy, highly skilled & empathetic w guests & a real gentleman to my family & me. News is a flirty business & it seems like current epidemic of #SexHarassmentAllegations may be criminalizing courtship & conflating it w predation. What about #GarrisonKeillor?

Mr. Grifter meets Dr. Dementia equals The Perfect Storm. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("A powwow with some very special people" )Trump is saying: "A lot of people don't know this, but they called it 'The Trail of Years' because it was so lovely it brought tears to everyone's eyes. . . . They absolutely loved it! . . . But the liberal professors all teach fake history."

"Singing like a sweet, little bird." . . . . Please come CAPTION Michael Flynn!!!

Michael ("On Thanksgiving, Turkey ate me!" ) Flynn is thinking: "Last package I got from The White House contained only dead canary. . . . Not even a note. . . Must have been about mine safety."

A blast from the past. . . . Please come CAPTION Michael Flynn on the campaign trail!!!

Micheal ("Just how does an actual pancake flip, anyway?" ) Flynn is saying: "And I want all you folks to know that I love this guy just like you love this guy. . . . I'd follow him through thick and thin. I'll stick by him always. . . . Hell, I'd take a bullet for this man! . . . You can mark my words."

"Is there a brain in there, or just horn?" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("What's wrong with 'just horn'?" ) Hannity is saying: "And I am not exaggerating one whit when I say that if just one-hundredth of what we've discovered n the past several weeks and discussed here tonight is true, . . . then not only should Robert Mueller resign, but he should turn himself over to the authorities for having committed treason against The United States of America! . . . You don't have to exaggerate when you have the truth."


Above CAPTION based on the right wing's increasing attacks on Mueller as in this story from The Hill:


Please come CAPTION Moore supporter and former Republican candidate for president, Alan Keyes!

Alan ("God keeps screaming in the middle of my cranium" ) Keyes is saying: "Roy Moore's trips to the mall were obviously spiritual in nature. Wasn't it Jesus who said 'Suffer little children to come unto me'? . . . Well, these days Jesus would obviously have to go where the children could find Him, right? . . . Don't you see? . . . Or is the left-wing media too blind to understand scripture when it's staring you straight in the face???"

Coming soon to the fever swamp of Fox Prime Time! Please CAPTION Mark Levin!!!

Mark (Limbo) Levin is saying: "I plan to maintain Fox's high standards for intelligent, in-depth political commentary as established by Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly."


Above CAPTION based on the story in Media Matters about Levin's past and up-coming duties at Fox:


"I hereby pardon this turkey, Paul Manafort." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("My hemorrhoids are gold plated" )Trump is thinking: ""So, McMaster is the second cabinet official to call me a moron. He even said, I had the intelligence of a kindergartner. . . . Wait til he finds the doggy-poop I put in his lunchbox!"
