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).

Where Pride and Hunger rage to rule. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("I'm surrounded by fools!" ) Trump is saying: "Top of the world, Ma!!! . . . Top of the world!!!"

"Don't be stupid, Stupid. Of course I'll leave.". . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump just finished saying: "Of course I'll leave the White House if the electoral college says I lost . . . . But to concede now would a crime against democracy and our way of life. . . . After all, it's not about me. I'm fighting this for all of America!"

"You never know when you'll need a tissue."" . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Palin!!!

Sarah ("Obama's A Promised Land is really a coloring book, not a self-biography" ) Palin: "Every time he opens his mouth, or writes a paragraph in this case, Obama shows how really very, very stupid he is. . . . He called me, and I'm quoting him directly, part of the 'anti-intellectual wing of the Republican Party.' . . . Well, I should hope so! . . . Hasn't anyone told him the intellectual part goes on the brain, not the wing. . . . Did he ever go to school, much less college?. . . . How did we ever vote for this guy, anyway?"

"I only don't do windows." . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!

Mike ("Who's buttering my bread today" ) Pence is saying. "I know President Trump lost, but that doesn't mean I still can't be useful in the new administration. . . . In fact, I think President -Elect Biden could do far worse that putting me in the cabinet, but I'd be willing to fill any position of authority and status. . . . But The President-Elect is smart enough to know this already. . . . He's actually quite brilliant, unlike the bozo in there no, geez. . . . I'm just reminding him and telling him I don't mind that he hasn't called so far."

"I could have been a constitutional lawyer. A great one!" Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "They are simply wrong, Rhonda, the constitution clearly wanted state legislators to choose the slate of electors for the Electoral College if they suspected fraud in the voting. . . . I'm not responsible for the ignorance of legal scholars."

"He wanted my soul and I thought: why not? I never use it anyway." Come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("A lie is just the truth turned inside out" )Trump is saying: "Listen, I sold my soul to the Devil and I aim to get my money's worth!!!"

"As today's election results come in, I'd like to say a few things." Come CAPTION PresiDened Trump!

"First, I'd like to say that I hope there is no violence on the streets. The Democrats are traitors and are trying to bring our country down, so I'd understand it if some get a little roughed up, but my supporters should remain peaceful, . . . unless of course they have a hard time controlling themselves, while they see biggest crime against the American people taking place."

"I called it first!" . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

Donald Trump is saying: "Everybody knows it's the guy who calls the election first who wins. It's in the rules like 'Jinx, you owe me a Coke,' or giving someone a wedgie. . . . But now Biden's people want to come in with their own rules. . . . Geez! . . . Can you believe these guys?"
