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).

"Whistleblower, turn yourself in for your own safety." Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald (One-Lonely-Brain-Cell) Trump is saying: "Look, I love the law; nobody loves it more. All I'm asking is that the whistle-blower turn himself in. . . We don't want to punish him, just find out all he knows. . . . So if you're listening, LooseLips, please call William Barr immediately. . . . We don't want to punish you, but if you don't call right away, there could be an accident when we finally come to arrest you."


Above CAPTION based on events surrounding this spud's call Ukrainia and subsequent news as in Vox:


"Mexico has agreed to pay for the wall!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "I just had a beautiful phone call with President Obrador of Mexico and he agreed to pay for the entire border wall between our two countries. . . . I know a lot of liberals and fake news-people don't want to hear that, but it's true. . . . He said he'd cut us a check just as soon as pigs can fly, so I'm ordering NASA to develop Porcine Airlines as part of our Space Force."

Profiles in Perfidy. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald J(*rkoff) Trump!!!

"I just can't win with this press, the fake news. . . . If I just begin planning to suspend a phony election that is going to be rigged from the start, they'll say I'm lawless and should be removed from office. . . . But if I ban the press, everyone will feel sorry for them and mad at me. . . . I just can't win with this mad-dog press."

"Heads I win; tails you lose." . . . Please come CAPTION Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends!!!

Steve Doocy is saying: "It's ridiculous to speculate about the whistle-bower's report until we know more. . . . So far we haven't seen a thing. . . . But one thing's for sure: releasing the complaint or the transcript of the call would set a terrible precedent."


Above CAPTION rather closely based on the hypocrisy of these three on the morning of 9.24.19 when dealing with the whistle-blower report on Trump extorting the president of the Ukraine. I rephrased (from memory) and juxtaposed the two statements to highlight this spud's dishonesty.

The clown show's clown show. . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Guliani!!!

Chris Cuomo just asked: "But you just said you didn't ask the Ukrainian government to investigate Biden."

Rudy (attic full of squirrels) Guiliani answers: "Yes, of course I didn't. That's the affirmative of truth's negative, by the way, or in other words, the un-disambiguation of an enigma. . . Like the answer 'No, I sure did' is in a similar vein. . . . both undercutting the re-decontextualization of your presumption, see? . . . Or didn't you go to college?"

"Liberals are panty-waists." . . . Please come CAPTION Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

Matt Gaetz is saying: "Corey, you win that seat and get upon the Hill and we'll pitch fake news people over the rail in the Capitol Building together. . . . Talk about doing the people's work!"

"My precious tax returns!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!

PresiDented Donald ("You can call me Jesus" ) Trump is saying: "Listen, let's get this straight once and for all: the only reason I have not disclosed my tax returns is to save liberal commentators and fake news the embarrassment of finding out I had done nothing wrong. Besides, I'm not 'hiding' my returns; I'm just not 'disclosing' them . . . and I'm not letting anyone else disclose them either. . . . This 'hiding' business just another product of fake news."

Malarkey Stew. . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Stuart Varney!!!!

Stuart Varney is saying "I don't see any illegality to taking the homeless off the streets and putting them in clean facilities where they can get help and training. Our legal system would applaud such an executive move in my opinion. . . . And while we're at it, there are many more misguided people who could use the camps and some re-education. . . . It sounds like a 'Win, Win, Win.' . . . Who could possibly object?"


Above CAPTION is based on the following exchange linked at Media Matters:


Vlad's BFF. . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Want a pardon?" ) Trump is saying: "That's the kind of question I'd expect from you. You're fake news is what you are! . . . And no, I don't feel the least responsible for us having to pull a deep-asset spy from Russia because I was joking around with some Russians in the Oval Office. . . . If he was against Putin, how in the devil could we trust him? . . . Use your head."

"But now I'm telling the truth. Believe me." . . . Please come CAPTION former congressman Joe Walsh!

Joe Walsh is saying: "Joy, I know, I know,I know. I lied about Obama's birthplace, I helped elect Trump by lying, I made thousands of racist statements, I've alluded to armed insurrection if Trump lost the election, and I've mislead about climate change which could result in the extinction of our species, but now I am running against President Trump in the primaries because of his bad character."
