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).

What a fine, upstanding, stalwart, principled, chickehsh*t. . . . Please come CAPTION John Bolton!!!

John (harder than tempered steel) Bolton is saying: "The truth is, I'd love to testify before Congress and what I have to say would greatly benefit the nation, perhaps even save it, . . . but I'm not like those limp-wristed bureaucrats and officials who testified despite the President's injunction. . . . What cowards!!!"

"Sometimes it gets cold in the winter. Right?" Come CAPTION Peter Gaynor, Trump's FEMA nominee!!!

Peter Gaynor: Of course, I know what climate change is, Senator. . . . But I don't know what causes it. . . . I could be people leaving their refrigerator doors open or it could be some four-hundred pound kid in this underwear living in his mother's basement."


Above CAPTION based on the following Crooks and Liars story concerning his confirmation hearings:


"Listen, Vlad, I've got something really important to talk about." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "No, it's not about Ukraine or about Syria or Iran or India. . . . And it's not about nuclear disarmament or about the G7 or about interfering with the 2020 election. . . . It's something really, really important. . . . You remember that loan you gave me . . .?"

"School shootings are bad, right?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (Scrooge's idiot nephew) Trump is thinking: "School shootings really grab all the air-time. It's playing on all the networks. . . . The suck up all the attention. . . . I'm not saying I'm for them, but after the week I had . . ."

The cancer has metastasized. . . . Please come CAPTION Mick Mulvaney!!!

Mick Mulvaney is saying: "No. I didn't ask for a judge to decide whether or not to testify before the House based on the fact that John Bolton looks eager to testify. . . . I'm not afraid of what he might have to say, but I just want to make sure the Committee hears that it was entirely his idea to pressure Ukraine and he only pretended to be opposed to it."

"The Greeks would wrestle completely naked. Just saying. . ." Please come CAPTION Jim Jordan!!!

Jim Jordan is saying: "The reports out today that knew of and ignored reports that Richard Strauss performed sexual acts in the showers is absolutely false. . . . I don't remember anything like that and I know I would. . . . I mean, it's kinda hot, isn't it?"


Above CAPTION based on the following story linked at DU:


"I'm the most perfect president in every way, even legally." Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald Trump is saying: "I love the law and believe in it. . . . I just want to know who the whistle-blower is to see if he can still blow a whistle after being water-boarded."

"With enemas like you, who needs friends?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Tump!!!

PresiDented ("Supersize that" ) Trump is saying: "The crazy, dying Washington Post completely
fabricated the story that I asked Bill Barr to publicly exonerate me as concerns the Ukraine call.
. . . Besides, he said he wouldn't do it."


Above CAPTION based on the 11.7.19 story in the Post that Trump asked Barr to hold a press conference about Trump's "perfect call," as seen in The Times and on Fox:



"'Whistle-blower'? Give me a break! More like a deep-state spy!" Come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!

PresiDented (Stapled-Penis) Trump is saying: "No dilemma. Absolutely none. Zilch. . . . In the first place, the man wasn't a whistle-blower. He was a plant, or a spy. . . . A Democrat operative. . . . And in the second place, and even more important, the framers of whistle-blower law, would want us to prosecute spies pretending to be whistle-blowers, to maintain the integrity of the law and, of course, future whistle-blowers. . . Real ones. . . . If I released his name, I'd not be breaking the law but upholding it. . . . That should be clear even to the fake news."

Moveover, Iago. Stand down Pap Finn. Make way for a master. . . .Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

PresiDented ("In for a penny, in for a p*ssy" )Trump is saying: "One very smart person was saying that all this problem with Ukrainian corruption and election interference would go away if we just lifted sanctions on Russia. . . . I can't tell you who it is, but he's very high up in his country, and really, really smart."
