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).

Profiles in Perfidy, XXIV. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("I smell rubber burning; I must be thinking" ) Trump is thinking: "Geez. . . . The polls. . . . The virus. . . . The polls. . . . The disloyal Republican senators. The polls. . . . Freakin' Mike Pence, for Christ's sake. . . . The polls. . . . There must be someway out of this. . . . How can I distract everyone? . . . There's no one left to fire. . . . They won't let me exterminate illegal immigrants, but that might have worked. . . . And they won't let me even touch a gun. . . . Say, I know! . . . What about a war! . . . Iran just put out an arrest warrant on me. . . . Won't they surprised! . . . And I'll be a hero once again. . . . Anyway, who is going to stop me? . . . But I've got to get going before the Republican senators turn on me. . . . Damn, this governing is hard stuff."

"The Ninth Commandment is really just a suggestion." . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!

Mike (Mr. False Witness) Pence is saying: "I can assure you that neither the president or I was briefed by our intelligence agencies that Russia had put a bounty on our soldiers in Afghanistan. . . . Just why is that so hard to believe?"

"'Leadership'? I thought you said 'Showmanship.'" . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying "This is great! . . . All packed in together . . . and without masks! . . . Fantastic! . . . We'll show them what Arizona-Proud really means! . . . Listen, . . . are you great or what?"

On the day with the highest number of new Covid cases. Please come CAPTION Fox's Trace Gallagher!!!

Trace Gallagher is saying: "Yes, Sandra, this is a historic day and we have lots of news to get to: The President is writing an executive order to punish those who desecrate federal statues, Seattle's CHOP district will likely be retaken by the city, a missing five-year-old boy was found hiding in his own basement, and the Santa Monica Bad-mitten Tournament will be temporarily postponed due to some (probably false) rumors about coronavirus."


Above CAPTION based on the fact that this clown didn't get to the virus for 12 minutes into a 10 a.m. Fox segment even though today's number of cases exceeded those of April and May during the once-in-a-century pandemic we are currently suffering!

Profiles in Perfidy, XXIII. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "I know that the coronavirus numbers are going up, but that's generally due to increased testing and actions (or should I say 'inactions') of certain states' governors, even some of them Republican. . . . They need to show stronger leadership. . . . I mean, they should take control of both reporting and recording and get rid of the so-called 'experts.'. . . . Then it will simply be a matter of time and the problem will be taken care of. . . . Simple."

Profiles in Perfidy, Twenty-Something. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Are you kidding? . . . . That's just like the fake news media, asking if I have a plan to deal with outbreaks of coronavirus. Of course I have a plan! Who ever told you different. . . . Wherever we see an outbreak, or a little ember as I call it, we will halt all testing in that area immediately."

"And when the bough breaks . . . " . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump just finished saying: "Sleepy Joe Biden is so old he's like a little baby. . . All he can do is fill his Depends and suck on a bottle of warm milk. . . . What a wimp!"

"Make my day, punk!" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("You should see my flamethrower!" ) Hannity is saying: "In these troubled times with the China virus (that lib-tards want us to call 'Covid-19'), the Democrats trying to keep the country closed, Antifa taking to the streets to kill and maim policemen before they burn the country down, and old men pretending to be attacked by law enforcement, the average law-abiding citizen, who might be a bit squeamish about taking a life, needs powerful non-lethal protection. . . . Truth be told, our nation can never come together again unless everyone feels safe. . . . Tomorrow I'll be talking about clay-mores that explode with live taser wires."

Profies in Perfidy XXI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDeted Trump!!!

Trump just finished saying, "Are you kidding? It was a terrible day. . . . Just terrible. . . . George Floyd's funeral was today. . . . It was on all the cable news programs, . . . but not a word about me!"

Profiles in Perfidy, XXI. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is thinking:"Hmmm . . . Ukraine made Russia go away. Covid-19 made Ukraine go away. The riots made Covid-19 go away. . . . Now I gotta figure how to make the riots go away. . . . Maybe a war or nuclear accident. . . . Maybe executing all immigrants. . . . Do I know how to govern or what?"
