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).

"Leave the thinking to me!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!



Donald (The Fart of the Spiel) Trump is saying: "I hate to contradict my critics, Sean, I really do, but pulling out of the Iran deal will make other countries more likely to trust us in future negotiations and treaties, not less. . . . They'll think I'm trying to use double-reverse psychology, trying not to get them to sign, take my bluffs as dares and think that white is black inside-out and to try to prove something to me and make me pay at the same time, they'll sign whatever I say. . . . It's like hey won't be able to help themselves. . . . (looks to the crowd) How can you stand all this winning? . . Huh?"

Playing Russian Roulette with a loaded revolver. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!



Donald ("Don't worry I know what I'm dew-wings" )Trump is saying: "All you have to know about the so-called Iran deal is one thing: its real name. The swamp and fake news call it the 'Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,' or JCPOA for short. But do you know what other thing JCPOA might stand for? How about the 'Japanese-Croatian People's Office of Anarchy'? . . . Think about it."

Sitting in the catbird seat. . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!



Mike ("It won't be long now" ) Pence is saying: "In answer to your question, sir, the 25th Amendment simply says that public officials cannot check books out of a public library without a card, just like everyone else. . . . No exceptions. . . . Nothing to concern you, Mr. President. Trust me."

"Just one little missile, please!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("Being able to destroy the earth twenty times over isn't even one-tenth enough." ) Trump is saying: "I still don't see why we can't shoot off even one nuclear bomb . . . . Just one little one is all I'm asking. . . . Both John and Rex said I could get one thing that I wanted if I didn't tweet about McConnell for a whole day. . . . Remember? . . . You can ask them if you want, . . . I mean if you don't want to take my word for it, . . . and I'm your president, remember?"

"I'd wipe his butt in a moron contest!" . . . Please comne CAPTION Donald Trump!!




Donald ("He can't even talk right" ) Trump is thinking: Boy, Id really clean his whistle in an I.Q. test cause I looked it up. It means Intelligence Quotient and Intelligence means Smart and Quotient means like Dividing or something. Therefore IQ means Smart Division, which is like long division but smarter. . . . Rex wont know what hit him.

"I've got you by the b*lls" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!



Donald ("and I'm ready to squeeze!" )Trump is saying: "Listen, I don't give a damned if you all resign!! . . . In fact, I've got your replacements all picked out. . . . How about Sarah Palin as Secretary of State, Ted Nugent at Defense, Alex Jones as Director of National Security, Cliven Bundy for Interior, . . . hell, I'll pardon Madoff and put him at Treasury. . . . Need I go on? . . . So no more of this talking behind my back or leaking to the press or mention of resignation, understand?"




"Harvey Weinstein was a piker." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("He won't dare to contradict me" ) Trump is saying: "Furthermore, John Kelly told me just this morning that being my Chief of Staff was like a dream come true. Not only is it his favorite job in his entire life, he said he cannot imagine a better job on the entiore planet, . . . ever! . . . Believe me. That's the gospel truth."

"You'll have to wait and see." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!




Donald (Carso's flatulence) Trump is singing:

"Could be the calm, the calm before the storm.
Could be the sweet, the sweet before alarm.
Could be the peace, the peace before the crime.
Could be the merde, the merde I feed you all the time."

"That's mighty right of you!" . . . Please come CAPTION Steve Bannon!!!




Steve ("Saving money on razor blades for over a decade" ) Bannon is saying: "Are you kidding? . . . I'm not denying a word of it. . . . You bet we at Brietbart sought out America's Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and KKK members for input into our stories. It's only fair since the left-wing media only gives the liberal, moderate, and mildly conservative, or RINO, points of view. . . . I mean. let's hear both sides and let the people decide."

"The dumb before the storm." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("Pack all your cares away" ) Trump is saying: "You know what this represents. This represents the calm before the storm. . . . But you don't have to worry. . . . I'm in charge. . . . It's going to be fine, believe me."
