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).

"I could run a line of hos! The very best hos!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald Trump is saying: "The rest of you guys, pay attention: . . . These two care enough to bring their own lube."

Battle of the Glands!!! . . . Please come CAPTION Lou Dobbs and S*itforBrains Gorka!!!

Lou ("My father used to smack me in the face to show how much he loved me" ) Dobbs is saying: "We need to declare full out, take-no-prisoners, hang-em high war on the anti-American cabal that wants to destroy our country. . . . And I'm not being hyperbolic, swear to God"

Sh*tforBrains ("Churchill was a pansy" ) Gorka is saying: "We could get them eating their own entrails just by cranking up the electricity and the heat. . . . Remember, it's not torture if it's necessary to save our democracy, . . . and if it's nationally televised, of course."

Zombie roadkill on a roll. Please come CAPTION Joe Arpaio!!!

Former Sheriff Joe ("Drop it, Numbnuts!" ) Arpaio is saying: "But the main reason I filed to have the contempt-of-court conviction cleared, Airy, is so I can run for Senate. Then I will be able to write stronger and better laws that we must all abide, everybody. . . . Surely that will make sense to the District Court."


Above CAPTION based (loosely) on the following story at The Hill linked at DU (and, the "Airy" is on purpose):


"At least the Neo-Nazis are Americans!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker (puppy-face) Carlson is saying, "You're right, Mark, the liberals love to support illegal aliens even though they don't even belong in our country. . . . You can say what you want about Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and KKK members, at least they are Americans, . . fellow countrymen, . . . like brothers."


Above CAPTION based on the link/story at Media Matters (I didn't need to exaggerate much):


"Let California be New Califonia!" . . . Please come CAPTION Robert Paul Preston!


Robert ("Hillary is trying to depopulate the planet" ) Paul Preston is saying: "I'd like to ask the caller just how it's treasonous to promote a great idea like splitting California in two. . . . Just because Russian bots are filing social media with the exact same message. . . . What can I say, when they have a good idea, they have a good idea."


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters piece:


"As round as I wanta be." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald T.!!!!

Donald Trump is thinking: "No one can say I'm obese now that the doctor claimed I gained an inch in height, . . . and it only cost me $175,000!"


Above CAPTION based on the Girthers who believe that Trump's height was increased so that a(t his weight of 239 lbs.) he would be just above the obese classification::


Quoth the Raven, "You gotta be joking!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald ("A turd in the hand is worth two in the tush" ) Trump is saying: "I strongly disagree with those who say only a large scale terror attack could keep the Democrats from winning big in November, although terrorists could easily mount one, say, against cooling systems at our nuclear power plants which have backdoor cyber access codes based on the names of our first three presidents (the fall-out could cover two states if they planned it carefully!), or by flying explosive laden single-engine planes into major damns upriver from densely populated areas, or . . . well, why list them all when David Bevins did it in The Jihadi Primer, which is now available on Amazon prime."


Above CAPTION based in the following Raw Story item linked at DU:




How low can you go? The Limbo Presidency. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

Donald (Hooter's chief tweeter) Trump is thinking: "I thought 'Shithole' was a compliment or term of affection. . . . After all, that's what my dad always called me. . . . It was almost like a nickname."

America's favorite ferret. . . Please come CAPTION Joe Arpaio!!!

Sheriff Joe ("Keep those hands where I can see them, Numbnuts!" ) Arpaio just finished saying: "That's crazy, Ari. . . . Saying that somebody who has broken laws can't go to the Senate to write laws is like saying someone who has beaten his legal-given wife, can't act as a judge in a divorce or paternity case. . . . You'd probably keep him from even being a marriage councilor! . . . . Don't you see how crazy that is?"

Above CAPTION based on the MSNBC Ari-Arpaio interview at DU:


"I thought 'sh*thole' was a compliment. That's what Dad always called me." CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("Fore!" ) Trump is tweeting: "Important for us to honor Martin Luthur King, Jr., this weekend and remember all his great day stands for: the Civil Rights activities of the past and stuff that he was involved with as so many people are saying, equality for all people as long as they act right (AFTER ALL WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?), and a day you have to plan ahead in order to get good tee times."
