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).

"I keep forgetting to take my human pill." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Tucker Carlson!!!

Tucker (Lobotomized at Birth) Carlson is saying: "And everything that comes out of Little-Miss-Alphabet-Soup's mouth is demonstrably false, but what's worse: it's divisive and venomous. It's the rhetoric of fire and destruction, the syntax of a bullwhip, the grammar of the gutter. She seeks to tear us apart, not unite us. . . . Hatred is like an organ for her, and it keeps spewing out bile and toxic waste. . . . What is wrong with these people, anyway? Don't they want harmony and understanding? . . . I know I do!"


Above CAPTION based on this clip at Crooks and Liars:


Profiles in Perfidy, LII. . . . Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-PresiDented Trump just finished saying: "Well, Marco, I just called to tell you one thing that might help you in your decision at the up-coming impeachment trial hoax, and I'll tell all the other Republican senators the same thing: I'm still a Republican and am as faithfully Republican as ever. . . . All that talk about starting a new party was just fake news and stuff. . . . I'm a Republican through and through. . . . And yeah, Marco, I wanted to call you special because you've got a good ear and great political instincts. . . . Which do you think sounds better: 'The Patriot Party' or 'The MAGA Party'? . . . I mean, hypothetically, if someone were to start a third party, which would have a better draw? . . . I'm just curious."

"I was going to get a Harley once myself." . . . Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-Presidented Trump is saying: "And now, get this, all the big high-rolling international banks have cut me off. . . . Little do they know what's about to happen. . . . Not one of my followers will be financing multi-million dollar construction projects in foreign countries through them. . . . None. . . . Nada. . . . What were they thinking?"

Talk about inheriting the wind! . . . Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-PresiDented Donald J. Trump is saying: "Remember this, son, you can't trust anyone who's not family. . . . You can only count on those closest to you. . . . They are the only ones who really know how to listen to you. . . . They're the only ones who truly care."

Barron Trump is thinking: "Yeah, yeah, whatever."

"Just what is 'unity' without the dregs?" . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson

Tucker (Millionaire)Carlson is saying: "Biden keeps talking about 'unifying the nation.' . . . But watch out if you're a political extremest, domestic terrorist, or white supremacist! . . . It appears he doesn't care about unifying with the kind of people who question the system in a robust manner."



Above CAPTION based on the Carlson clip and story at Media Matters:

"Where's my band?" . . . Please come CAPTION non-PresiDented Trump!!!

non-PresiDented Trump is thinking: "Melania will calm down after a bit and let me move my stuff in, I just know it! . . . Maybe after another 18 holes . . .?"

"Wht's all this talk about 'truth' and 'facts'?" . . . Come CAPTION F&F's Ainsley Earhardt!!!

Ainsley Earhardt is saying: "So, just how is the Biden administration trying to bring us together by emphasizing 'truth' and 'facts' about, for example, the virus and election results? . . . Don't they know there are always two sides?"

Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-Presidented Trump is saying: "They could at least have let me keep the plane."

Now is the winter of our content. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented (for 3 more hours) Trump is saying: "The movement we have started is a gigantic one, an historic movement, you might say. It's real American movement and overpowers anyone in its way. . . . And when I look deeply into this movement, I can see my future."

Meanwhile, back at the fair's pardon booth. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "And for that price, you not only get a pardon but you get a deluxe family pass that allows you and up to four family members to go on any and all rides until 12 noon tomorrow."
