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).

"Somebody keeps following me." . . . Please come CAPTIOM PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("What year is this? Who's president?" ) Trump is thnking: "It's like everybody else is nuts. . . . Their ideas are grabbing them by the collars and smashing them into walls. . . . Everywhere I go I hear silent explosions and know what's happening far down below. . . . The deep state has a battalion of invisible men trying to destroy everything I am. . . . But I can get America out of this. . . . I just gotta keep my head."


Above CAPTION based on reports of Trumps increasing instability as addressed by Crooks and Liars, summarizing a Vanity Fair story:


Make America Grim Again. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald Trump is saying: “‘NAFTA,’ ‘NAFTA,’ ‘NAFTA,’ that’s all I hear is ‘NAFTA’! . . . NAFTA has harmed hundreds f millions of hard-working Americans and manufactures. . . . So we’re going to call it something else from now on. . . . It’s not ‘NAFTA’ anymore. . . . It's now the North American Trade Agreement, or NATA. . .. And most importantly, ‘NATA’ fits better on a baseball cap. . . . Who says I've not done anything of lasting consequence?”

"With all due respect . . ." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald ("All eyes on he?" ) Trump is thinking: "Sure he deserves a bit of honor, but Jesus, day after freaking day, wall-to-wall McCain. . . . I don't want to take anything away for him but maybe I could round up some bad hombres in a massive raid. . . . No, then it will be all about Sessions. . . . How 'bout a sneak attack on North Korea? . . . Naw, then all the generals and soldiers will get all the attention. . . . Damn! . . .I know! . . . I could stage a coup against myself! . . . Perfect. . . . I mean, I don't want to take anything away from McCain, but this will show them all!"

"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:


"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?"
