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).

"Why would you ever listen to what you're telling yourself?" . . . Come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!





Donald ("If you know you're right, how can you be wrong?" ) Trump is saying: "I'm the only one who you can trust, and if you doubt that, just ask me, . . . if so, fact so, dummy."



****************************************************
Above CAPTION based on the following Washington Post story:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-pushes-a-reality-where-opponents-are-peddling-false-facts-and-only-he-can-be-trusted/2018/08/30/d7ac7c38-ac62-11e8-b1da-ff7faa680710_story.html?utm_term=.9f8ee7ebad26

"Sure, McCain was okay I guess." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald Trump!!



Donald (The original handicap) Trump is saying: "I certainly do not mind all the attention John McCain is getting after his death, even though people are neglecting one of the greatest trade deals of all times while enjoying a historically high economy. . . . I mean, if they want to name some regional airports and old buildings after him, fine. . . . It just shows the world what a great country America is that someone could rise so high on such mediocre intellect and pretense of patriotism. . . . Of course they tell me he had some connections. . . . Anyway, nowhere but America!"

"He thought it was always about him." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




Donald ("I'm not planning on dying" ) Trump is saying: "Despite our differences on policy and politics, I respect Senator John McCain's service to our country and I say this even though the timing of his death was a bit suspicious: just before I was going to announce the greatest trade agreement ever. . . . Some people are saying things about that, . . . like how did they know about the timing of the trade deal? . . . Was there a leak?. . . What was McCain's original plan for dying? . . . And so on, . . . but now's not the time to go into it. . . . After all, the week's still young."

"That senator who I will not name." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




Donald ("Mexico's my b*tch now" ) Trump is saying: "Are you kidding? The new trade deal with Mexico is great. . . . It's fantastic. . . . It pushed that traitorous senator who I will not name out of the spotlight, didn't it?"

"Look, I like war heroes who didn't die." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




Donald ("My bone spur has a name: Pinocchio" ) Trump is saying: "The real story is that McCain was never the same after that prison camp. . . . I don't want to spread unfounded rumors, but some people are saying the North Koreans with Soviet advisors got to him in prison, you know, like brain washing, . . . I mean, he was an admiral's son and everything. . . . If they could turn him, what a great plant! . . . They could steer him into politics and then pull his strings. . . . But it might just have been the torture. . . . Again, I don't want to start any rumors, that's just what I heard."

Hyperbole's Champion, Master of Hypocrisy. . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump:



Donald (bone-spur in frontal lobe) Trump is saying: "Look, I like war heroes who don't die, . . . alright?"

"Can you imagine such a man?" . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




Donald ("Even my hemorrhoids are 99.9% gold; that's been certified" ) Trump is saying: "Ainsley, If I would have known pudgy Jeff Sessions was going to foul everything up by recusing himself from the Russia witch-hunt, I wouldn't have hired him. But his loyalty out-weighed what I should have figured would come from a moral vacuum on two, pudgy legs, prancing up and down while obviously thinking what he's talking about and saying is so god-awful important and absolutely right every damned time!!! . . . And even making a big show of it!!!! . . . Can you imagine such a man?"



The Party of Personal Rancidity. . . . Please come CAPTION Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA)!!!




Duncan ("It must have been the dog that farted" ) Hunter is saying: "I'd like someone to explain to me in simple terms just how telling the truth is 'throwing my wife under the bus'? as you put it so bluntly. . . . Listen, I turned all of the family finances over to her the day we got married. . . She even paid Honeymoon suite. . . . If funds were misspent from my campaign donations, you'll have to ask her. . . . Hell, I don't even know how to write a check. . . . I mean, whose name goes where and stuff. . . . Just how is that 'throwing her under the bus'?"

"Manafort's face should be on the $20. How's that hyperbole?" Come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!



Donald ("I did a good deed once. Couldn't sleep for weeks." ) Trump is saying: "When you come right down to it, Ainsley, speaking against me or my actions as the President of the United States should be illegal, because it's spreading false information and deliberately misleading the electorate. . . . Forget about Russia. . . This is a thousand times worse. . . . Talk about treason! . . . . I've been more than tolerant for a long time, but there's an end to everything."

Above CAPTION based on the vomit of obfuscations, misdirections, arrogant rantings, and foul conceptions in the Fox interview with The Current Resident August 22, 2018. Here's one short clip (if you want you can find the rest):

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/22/trump-weighs-manafort-pardon-in-exclusive-fox-friends-interview.html

"Today was the greatest day of my presidency!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




Donald ("What, me worry?" ) Trump is saying: "And have you heard the latest?. . . Another leak from Mueller's investigation. . . .Turns out, they can't find a thing on me. . . . Not a single thing. . . . Can you believe it? . . . And yet they keep investigating and investigating. . . . 'Cause they hate Trump, who by the way is keeping his mouth shut. . . . I mean I could say a lot of things, if you know what I mean. . . . Meanwhile Mueller's leaking like a sieve. . . . You just can't make these things up!"

Creative CAPTION for 8.21.18 rally after Manafort guilty verdict and Cohen plea agreement earlier that day. Based only on my imagination of what he might liked to have said if he thought he could get away with it.
