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).

"Of course it's all mine! What did you think?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Thank God I'm not a twisted freak like you!" ) Trump is saying: "Look, Michael, you little rat, why couldn't you be more like Roy Cohn and less like a pile of dog-shit on Fifth? . . . You bet I'm pissed! . . . . How could you rat out on me??? . . . You owe me loyalty for the way I've treated you all these years. . . What??? Did I say you could talk? . . . . . You see? . . . Just what part of 'lapdog' don't you understand?"

An enigma wrapped in bacon. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Are you going to eat those fries?" ) Trump is saying: "It's not so much as if I wasn't saying what I was when I said wouldn't instead of would in terms of no longer suspending doubts about the many criticisms of our intelligence services, which they are at a loss to disagree, as much as what it wasn't what I hadn't yet said. In other words, I couldn't not begin, or wouldn't if you will, any longer to not disbelieve Putin's lack of denials, instead of what the fake news reported." . . . That should clear things up."

"How dare anybody!!!" . . . Please come CAPTION Alan Dershowitz!!!

Alan ("You've been served" ) Dershowitz is saying: "How dare anyone say my legal judgement is based on anything but objective,dispassionate, and accurate views that are distinctly to all other judgments, especially those to the contrary! . . . . If I was wrong, I'd be the first to tell you. . . . Of that you can be sure!!!!"

"My play-date with Putin will have a military parade. How cool is that?" . . CAPTION the Trumpster!!

Donald Trump just finished reciting a poem he wrote all yesterday:

"Best buds never let each other down.
Best buds never make each other frown.
Best buds keep each other up.
Best buds share their sippy cups.
Best buds make each other laugh.
Best buds splashing in the bath.

I call it 'Best Buds.' . . Clever, huh?"


CAPTION written in in honor of Putin's announced visit to United States this fall as covered by all.

Beware the Day-Glo Orange Swamp Monster! . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("It's the scat tapes I'm really worried about" ) Trump is saying: "Fake news is going wild! . . . But it's no big deal, having Putin to the White House. . . . Look, if you take all the time he and I have really spent together, it's not much more than a play-date. . . . So now it's time for him to see where I live."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's 7.19.18 invitation to Putin to visit Washington this fall as covered by Reuters:


"'No's' not even in the dictionary!" . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Donald Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("I have to put itching power in my briefs just to stay awake" )Trump is saying: "Listen, I did NOT tell Putin we would send former Ambassador Michael McFaul to Russia to face K.G.B. interrogators. . . . That would be insane! . . . I said we could have them both meet at one of our black sites in The Middle East or Northern Africa. . . . After all, they're already equipped for that."


Above CAPTION based on the following story as in this clip at Crooks and Liars:


"Will you would or will you wouldn't?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("I used to be twice as long" ) Trump is saying: "I really meant to say 'wouldn't' even though it goes against what I just said about Putin's denial (and it was very strong!) l as well as contradicting a number of other things I said at the Helsinki summit conference. . . . It's called surprise. . . . Tactics. . . You should read The Art of the Deal. . . Then you wouldn't look so shocked."

Never enough traitorous morons! . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!

Steve Doocy began the bit by saying: " . . . and we don't know what went on behind closed doors for over two hours. . . Two hours! . . That fact alone told me Trump was in there holding Putin's little pinkies to the flames. . . . But when we saw the way Putin acted so deceitfully self-assured afterward their meeting, . . . well, that really gives it away. . . . That is, to anyone who's actually seeking the truth. He's feeling exactly the opposite inside. . . It's got K.G.B. written all over it! Look at the body language! . . . It's trade craft. . . . One page one of the manual!"

Abby Huntsman is saying: "We just don't know what we just don't know. We should remember that. . . And maybe Trump should clarify a little. . . . It doesn't have to be much, just how we don't know what we just don't know or in case we forget."

Brian Kilmeade is about to say: "It's like a kettle of beans or fish that can't stop unwinding when you say or just when you want or even when you start thinking about wanting but you realize way, deep down that it could go either way. . . . Have you ever been there? . . . For me it happens all the time."


Above CAPTION based in morning-after apologetics, faux reflections, and deflections by our loathsome crew on July 17, 2018, the morning after the Trump-Putin "summit" in Helsinki.

Another clusterf*ck in shallow right. . . . Please come CAPTION Vlad and The Donald!!!

PresiDented Donald Trump is saying: "About that pudding opera thing we talked about, there are a dozen back doors in most states and if you tell them 'It's The G.O.P Guy' (case sensitive) they'll just let you in. . . . Maybe it's not a good idea to run up the score too high or I'll have investigations about 2018 for years. . . . And there is no more pee-and-scat tape, right?"

Vlad (The Glad) Putin is about to say, "I'll do whatever the hell I want and you'll like it, okay b*tch?"

Trump: "Yes, sir."

"You're my b*tch." . . . Please come CAPTION Vladimer Putin!!!

Vladimer Putin is saying: "Just remember, you're my b*tch."
