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).

"The Pro-Spin Zone" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!

Bill O'Reilly is standing behind the graphic artist at her computer and saying: "Yeah, make the brows a little fuller and the lines in my forehead a bit more even and regular, . . . like I'm a straight-up moral guy with nothing to hide. . . . By the way, I'm not wearing any underwear."

"Who the hell does God think he is?" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!

Bill ("I'm not wearing underwear" ) O'Reilly is saying: "Look, you want to know who dropped the ball here? . . . Well, it was in God's court, wasn't it? . . . And the thing that burns me up is that my children, who were entirely innocent, had to suffer. . . . So I think I have right to demand an explanation. . . . After all, who the hell does He think He is?"


Above CAPTION based on O'Reilly's comments 10.24.17 as reported by CBS:


For every thing there is a season. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald Trump is thinking: "I'm grieving in my own way."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's attention to the funeral of one serviceman killed in Niger, Sgt. La David T. Johnson, Oct. 21, 2017.

A blast from the past! . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!!

Bill ("Move Over, P.T. Barnum, I've got one more act!" ) O'Reilly is saying: "Listen, the fact that the out-of-court settlement for sexual harassment was for 32 million dollars, doesn't mean a damned thing. . . . Zero. . . . Zilch. . . . Nada over nada in no time! . . . That's simply how much I value my good name. That's all it means. . . . Why's that so hard to believe?"

"Why won't she drop it?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("It's her fault!" ) Trump is tweeting: "Wacky congresswoman Wilson shows Dems for what they are: Cartoon Network. Repubs. win big in '18 with no loons. #WhatAreTheyThinking?"

"Now it's Gold Star families with fake emotions!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("What's 'sacred' mean?" )Trump is tweeting: "Gold star families deserve utmost respect but shouldn't bite the hand that feds. Sad. #I'veGotProof"

The wet, hot, smelly dump in The White House . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Do you know how much my time is worth?" ) Trump is saying: "Carol, can we do a conference call so I can speak to all four families at once? . . . I want to be on the course by one."


Above CAPTION Based on the conservatory surrounding Trump's call to Gold Star families as reported by ABC News:


"In for a dollar, in for a dump." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("You've got the tab" )Trump is saying: "You bet I've got proof of what I really said to that guy's widow, the one who was shot in Africa, and I sure didn't say 'Well, he signed up for it' (even though that's literally true, just so you understand), . . . Furthermore, I didn't forget the man's name! . . . I'd actually love to show all of you the proof, believe me. . . . But out of respect to his grieving widow, I'll not produce it because that would only extend this issue and hurt her even more."

"When I call 'em, I call 'em!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (Mr. Empathy, himself) Trump is saying: "Peter, if you'll give me a minute. . . . What I meant was obvious: Obama might have had his secretary place a telephone call to grieving parents a couple times, but all he would do was just say a few words over and over and over again. A couple short sentences. . . . He probably had them all written down, or used a recording. . . . But when I call 'em, I call 'em!! . . . I say how hard it was to call and how calls like this really get me down. But how I'll still be a great president anyway, despite weak and ineffective congressional leaders. Then I thank them for their loss, and at that point if it's gone smoothly, I mean without too many tears, I tell them that if they have a few words I'd like to heard them and give them a half minute or so (do you know what my time is worth?), before I tell them I have got to go and be the president and make America great again! . . . Like I say: when I call 'em, I call 'em."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's bizarre claims that he was the only president to call the famlies of fallen soldiers as reported by The Washington Post:


This man is a menace.

"The First Amendment was the worst amendment." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("You don't have the right of free peaches, do you?" ) Trump is saying: "Wait. Just wait. . . Don't put words in my mouth. . . . I'm not against the First Amendment. . . . Not at all. . . . I'm just against some individuals or entities like NBC using it to destroy this nation. . . . By yanking their license, I'd be saving the Constitution, not undermining it. . . . That should be obvious."
