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).

"Sanity is highly overrated." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!




PresiDented Trump is saying: "Look, I had a lengthy, substantive call with President Xi of China last night, and he told me in so many words that we had China over the barrel and he was ready to sit down at the table and give us virtually anything we wanted; that's what he said, 'virtually anything,' and his English was perfect. He also said he wants to help make America great again. . . . It was wonderful, . . . like a dream!"

As a side note. and one revealing blatant mendacity, Steve Mnuchin backed him up on this fabricated call as Vice points out:

"Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin later repeated the claim that there had been contact between the two sides, but would not say which officials from each side had been in touch."

"G7 loves the American President!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!




PresiDented Trump is saying: "Let me tell you, every great leader here at the G7 supports America's trade war with China. . . . Furthermore, there is overwhelming support for readmitting Russia to the G7. They simply love the idea, just like they love me. . . . They were even going to pass a resolution to that effect, but they're too shy."

"I hereby order the tide to recede." Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald Trump!!!




PresiDented (Crazy King George) Trump is saying: "Beside ordering all U.S. businesses not to have any relationship with China, I have many more ideas of how to deal with them if they persist in their madness. . . . I could stop all Mandarin classes at our great universities. . . . I could order government maps to be re-drawn without China on them. . . . I could prohibit anyone from even saying 'China' if I wanted to . . . I can do these things by executive order and they would all be perfectly legal."

"God made me number one!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!





Donald Trump is saying: "Only Christ loved the Jews more than I do. Only Christ loved blacks and browns and yellows more than I do. And only Christ loved America and the second amendment more than I do. . . . Just so you know."

Wackier than Buchmann and Palin put together. Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!



PresiDented Trump is saying: "Some say Greenland's glaciers are melting, so it would be a bad deal. . . . But if we went in there with all our scientists and engineers and especially developers (a subject I happen to know a lot about, probably more than anyone ever), we could get those icecaps healthy again, and frankly, I think it would be a great tourist spot. . . . And think of this, in Greenland there are no terrorists, Mexicans, Arabs, or Democrats. . . It's like a 'win, win, win, win, win.'"

PresiDented Donald ("Double-size that!" ) Trump is saying: "If you think about it, Greenland is a great deal. For instance, if global warming occurs, and I don't for a moment believe it will, then Greenland's ice will all melt and the seas will rise and places like Greenland and Siberia will be the only places life will be tolerable. . . . Not that I believe that will happen. . . . In the meantime, I'm removing all EPA regulations of coal burning plants as well as under-sea and national forest exploration for more petroleum reserves."

The Enema of the People. Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald Trump!!!




PresiDented Trump is saying: "I gave you the greatest economy the world has ever known, and now the fake news and the left wing media are trying to tank the economy just to get rid of me!. . . . No responsibility! . . . They won't hold themselves the least bit accountable for what happens to our economy!"

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Bill, I'm simply not paying and I'll tell you why: the broken neck bone is why. I thought your guy was supposed to be top rate. . . I'm sure someone at the Department could have could have pointed you to someone better. . . . You know the sad truth: you're turning into Jeff Sessions."

PresiDented Trump is saying: "If you want to know the truth, I really didn't know Jeffrey Epstein very well at all. . . . We both liked golf and shared a passion for history. . . . In fact, the last time I spoke with him, we were discussing Roman emperors and what happen to people who plotted against them and failed. . . . They were really very civilized about it. . . . But, like I said, I didn't know him very well at all."
