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).

Listening in on the gods' party line. . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Giuliani

Rudy ("I know things without anyone bothering to tell me." ) Giuliani is saying: "I not only know that Obama knew of the spy deep cover embedded in Trump's presidential campaign, he ordered it! . . . Don't ask me how I know, but I know it for sure. . . . I'm not even going to mention Obama's string of underage hookers to compromise Republican congressmen. . . . They call them Clinton''s kids. . . . But never mind about that. . . . Just wait till all this comes all out. Then you'll see. . . . You just wait!"


Above CAPTION based on a Giuliani interview covered by The Hill:


Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends' Pete Hegseth!!!!

Pete ("So what if I was only child and home-schooled? I graduated the highest in my class!" ) Segseth is saying: "Well, I say let's be fair to Kim Jong Un, . . . Let's give him a chance. . . . Maybe he was messing with the terms of negotiation because he was stressed. . . . I mean, having to kill your family members all day long, . . . Well, it must be a strain. . . . And then, there are fewer and fewer people to talk with that night. . . . I say, let's try to understand where he's coming from and maybe cut him some slack."


Above CAPTION Based on the following Media Matters story with a short clip:


A mere morsel in the maw of Satan. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!

Donald (The duck-with-a-rump) Trump is saying: "You guys are call it Spygate and we'll probably find out that Obama and Hillary ordered a spies be deeply embedded in my campaign for President. . . . These people tried to destroy the work of history, my work! . . . And a lot of people are saying these traitors, for that's what they are, make no doubt. . . . And it's no exaggeration to sya this is worst than the Civil War and both world wars as well."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's floating of "Spy-gate" as the scandal du jour as covered by The Washington Post:


He's such a tight-*ss, when he farts only the dogs can hear it. Please come CAPTION Steve Doocy!!!

Steve ("I put my underwear on backwards just to f*ck with myself" ) Doocy is saying: "Listen guys, we got 20 seconds. . . . I say we put the B Block, 'Collusion isn't even a crime,' after the D Block, 'Manafort and Cohen were entrapped,' which we can do immediately after A, 'The FBI wants America to fail,' and still wind up with E: 'We're the only real news, fair and unbiased'? . . What do you say?"

The World's Only Human Woody! . . . . Please come CAPTION Oliver North!!!

Oliver (Short for "Daddy's Big Mistake" ) North is saying: "I wasn't criticizing the Parkland students, I called them 'dupes!' . . . They were duped by the Liberal Media to put a sympathetic face on the Anti-Second Amendment traitorous cabal, just as they were duped by a permissive society that has always done everything for them to lay down their worthless lives instead of fighting back They accepted their own victim hood, which is the sure sign of a coward. . . . How is that being critical?"


Above CAPTION based on the following story at Crooks and Liars with a disgusting clip:


"I'll flog them with tweets until they c*m!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I don't wipe my *ss with anything less than a fifty." ) Trump is tweeting: "Fake news & brain-haired witchhunt come up dry. Time to say enough! If they don't have the honor of apologizing & closing up shop, well then. . . . I've a sworn duty to uphold." And Trump continues thinking: That'll get 'em. Surely they'll see how stupid it was to look at me and my dealings. . . . Knowing how brilliant I am, they should have quit before they started. . . . What were they thinking?

"My straight-jacket is all tricked out!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!

Sean ("I eat roadkill for breakfast. Keeps me fit." ) Hannity is saying: "And after one year what have we learned? Nothing about Trump, but everything about the traitorous deep state and how they are destroying this nation from within at the behest of an evil design drempt up in a liberal, homicidal maniac's wet dream, , , , Literally!"


Above based on the unhindged rant of Hannity's on a clip posted on Huffington Post:


At the hearings for the Chief Spook! . . . Please come CAPTION Gina Haspel!!!


Gina ("Remember how you used to hate it when your mother shampooed your hair?" ) Haskel is saying: "Well, Senator, if we knew it was torture, we wouldn't have done it. That should be obvious. . . . Certain as I am sitting before you today. Which is sure as such things can be, but then time is always passing and, as the philosopher Heraclitus said, 'You can't step into the same river twice' or maybe even the first time. . . . So there you go! Today it's another river altogether, like with different fish swimming to entirely different seas. . . . That should be abundantly clear! . . . But truth be known, I've always been quietly against waterboarding and other forms of nearly-lethal stress conditioning . . . Besides, they don't work anyway!"


Above CAPTION based on the May 9, 2018 Senate confirmation hearing on Gina Haskel for C.I.A. Chief as covered by The Washington Post:


"The problem with armored cars is you gotta pay off the guards." Please come CAPTION Michael Cohen!

Michael ("Donald just pretends not to like me. It's all for show, he said" ) Cohen is saying: "What's so illegal? I mean, say this guy opens an account to help an old friend. Then somebody comes along and stuffs a half-million dollars into this account. . . . I mean, is the first guy going to be concerned who put in the half mil? . . . NO! . . . He'd just help his friend. . . . And then if the somebody with the money wanted his friend to do a favor, is the first guy going to try to stop him? . . . NO! . . . Not even if that somebody was trying to change the the nature of the friend's coun-- . . . I mean 'company.' . . . It wouldn't be any of this guy's business. . . . Nothing illegal, nothing at all."


Above CAPTION based on Cohen's shady company possibly funneling Russian money to Trump as covered by BBC News:


"Talking with you is like dry-humping a wire brush!" . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Giuliani!!!

Rudy ("Alzheimer's is greatly underrated" ) Giuliani is saying: "No, no. . . . You have to learn to know these things withouh thinking about them. . . . If you have to think about them, then you're not knowing, see? . . . Every lawyer worth his or her salt knows that I mean. . . . And they know it without thinking. . . . People get lost thinking . . . Wandering in some valley of thought. . . . 'Was I with this porn star? Did I collude with Russia? What about those meetings? and Where did I get those millions?' . . . It's a waste of time. I wanta know where I am! . . . So I decided, why not? . . . Know what I mean? . . . And, no, to answer your second question, President Trump has no desire to make me stop giving interviews. . . Why would you ask?"
