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).

Devin ("Just how is that extreme?" ) Nunes is saying: "Well, Matt, it's important for all the CPAC attendees to know that's there's no chance for law and justice until these F.B.I. officials, F.I.S.A. judges, and the Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee, with whom they are collaborating, are arrested and held accountable for their actions. . . . The left-wing media is next."

"Can't you read?" . . . Please come CAPTION President Batsh*t!!!!

Donald (Rump Watch) Trump is saying: "Shifty little Adam Schiff's memo totally exonerates me. . . . People who say differently have either got an agenda or they don't know how to read. . . .

Above CAPTION based on Trump's reaction to the release of the Democratic memo for the House Intel Committee as covered by CNN:

Above based on the rain of indictments that Manafort has recently received yesterday, 2.23.18,

Just to show I'm on their side and understand where they're coming from, I'm going to pay for all of their application fees. . . . How's that?"

Just because I said you should stop your clueless criticism of our president and get back to you shuckin' and jivin', you immediately pull out the race card. That's exactly what I would expect from a couple ignorant savages. . . . I haven't a racist bone in my body!"
