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).

"Democrats are lying through their teeth." . . . Please come CAPTION Ron Johnson!!!




Ron Johnson is saying: "By their essential criminal nature, Democrats have destroyed confidence in our voting system, forced Americans to take useless (and some say poisonous) shots, and outlawed Christmas. . . . You simply can't trust anything these people say!"

"Isn't Omicron the name of a new bike?" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!



Peter Doocy is saying: "I got Omicron it was no walk in the park, let me tell you. It was more like sitting down on a bench and watching the squirrels for a couple days."

Ainsley Airhead is saying: "All the doctors are sending mixed messages."

Brian Kilmeade is saying: "So it's really important to choose the best authority. . . . For instance, Joe Rogan has a bigger audience than God, and he says . . ."

Above CAPTION (which is satire) is based on a Media Matters article with a healthy clip:

"Tucker, we're both men of our word." . . . Please come CAPTION Ted Cruz!!!




Tucker (The Bearded Invertebrate) Cruz is saying: "Like you, Tucker, I'm morally incapable of lying. When I said 'violent terrorist attack' I meant every word. But you have the context all wrong. . . . I was talking about the Capitol Police's over-reaction. . . . If they would have stood down, the patriots would have been able to deliver their message to Congress in peace. . . . As it is, you saw what they created!"

"It wasn't a coup so much as a reassessment." . . . Please come CAPTION Peter Navarro!!!!



Peter Navarro is saying: "It was all perfectly legal, Ari. . . . We were going to sweep in and overwhelm the vote count, taking out their front line and crushing their pass defense. Then our quarterback, Mike Pense, would would ram the ball down their throats and while they were all choking on their own blood, he'd say that Donald Trump won the election despite all the whiny liberals talking about vote counts and democracy . . . All perfectly legal."

"'Conservative' means 'serve' the 'con.'" . . . Please come CAPTION Marjorie Taylor Greene!!!



Marjorie Taylor ("I'm always packin'" ) Greene is saying: "The problem with Representative Dan Crenshaw, Bill, is common to a number of so-called conservatives: He goes out of his way to say something that sounds like it makes sense. . . . That makes everything I say sound insane by comparison. . . . To put it simply, he is destroying my brand!"
