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).

"Tweety took my widdle whistle." . . . Please come CAPTION John Bolton!!!

John (Ol' Iron Undies) Bolton is saying: "That's ridiculous. I couldn't be
the whistle-blower. . . . I'd never be able to get a whistle past this 'stache."

"Trump's tiny hands turn me on." . . . Please come CAPTION Sen. Marco Rubio (R FL)!!!

Marco Rubio is saying: "The President is clearly joking about pulling out of Syria. . . . He's playing you guys like a whore-house piano on a Saturday night. . . . Geez! When will you ever learn?"


With my big, powerful, genius brain I have combined two news items to create the brilliant CAPTION above: Trump's announced Syria withdrawal (Sept. 8, 2018) and with Marco Rubio's reaction to Trump inviting China to investigate Joe Biden several days earlier.

Impeachment on the installment plan. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Look. If I told you there was a word-for-word transcript of my call to Ukraine in the secure file, you'd demand to see it because you wouldn't believe the summary we released was damning enough. . . . If I gave an explicit quid pro quo in the full transcript, you'd impeach me. . . . If you impeached me the people would violently rise up against both the Democrats and the fake news. . . . So, I'm withholding the full transcript for your own good. . . . My first job as President is to protect every American citizen, even you guys!"

"I know I'm guilty, but what are you?" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!

Donald ("You really don't even have the right to speak to me." ) Trump is saying: "Listen, quid pro quo means something about something but it's in Latin so nobody knows for sure. They say it's a dead language, . . . and then look at what happened to the Romans. We know that from history. . . . Excuse me! . . . Excuse me! . . . I'm answering your question if you'd just give me time. . . . And the Romans like the Nazis thought they would rule forever. . . . Notice a trend here? . . . They both knew Latin, that should give you a hint."

"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!"
