About Me

I'm an old professor, having taught at the university level in Louisiana for over 30 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetrythough 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. 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).

Donald ("My teleprompter has the best words") Trump is saying: "And . I say . this . sincerely, . directly . from . my . heart . to . yours, . I . will . never . lie . to . you, . . . Never! . . . It's . not . in . my . nature . to . pretend . to . be . someone . else . Wait . for . applause . to . die . down. . . . I . am . who . I . am. . . . I'm . not . a . politician. . . .

"I learned to nap during interviews." . . . Please ceom CAPTION Dr. Ben Carson!!!




Ben ("Just why won't Obama invite me to lead the Prayer Breakfast any more?") Carson is saying: "Donald Trump, unlike Hillary Clinton, does not pander to African Americans. . . . On the contrary, instead of promising to give them a bigger piece of the pie, he wants to bake more pies! . . . Dozens of pies. . . . Hundreds! . . . Millions!!! . . . He will give them away in poor neighborhoods, . . . so each person can have his or her own pie. . . . Furthermore, because Mr. Trump believes in freedom, each person will be able to have the kind of pie he or she wants: blueberry or strawberry, or peach, or like my favorite, apple. . . . And who, after all, doesn't like pie?"

Through mind's terrible looking glass. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("See me twirl the basketball?") Trump is saying: "And I swear I will never, ever lie to you. Absolutely! I will never - ever - lie - to - you! . . . Like Hillary does to our citizens in the inner cities. . . . But mark my words, if you elect me, in four years I will receive over 95% of the African-American vote. . . . I promise you!"


***********************************

Today I confess: I did not create a CAPTION; I only deleted the section between the first and last statement and added a transitional thought (which can be found in spirit elsewhere) while tinkering with the words a wee bit. I feel like a failure. . . . But then I wonder who can successfully mock a clown miming the death of the intellect? I mean, sure, it can be done, but successfully. . . ?

"Remember not to forget to take your amnesia medicine." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("Bend over for a quick smooch") Trump is saying: " . . . so in the heat of battle I may have slipped a couple of times and said something I now regret. . . . But that was all in the past. . . . Not even worth remembering. . . . Let's move on. . . . Nothing to it."

Who else?? . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!



Donald ("My flatulence is gold-plated") Trump is saying: "I have to tell you that most people find my temperament to be my greatest quality. . . . 100%! . . . Greater than my grasp of the issues, and greater than my concern for the American public and dedication to the Constitution, and even greater than my love of minorities and ethnic groups. . . . Like you wouldn't believe!"

Vinimanie!!! . . . Please come CAPTION the New Troika!!!




Donald ("I'm my own huckleberry") Trump is "thinking": "If I was him that's the way I would look without a shirt. . . . Now that's branding! . . . Fabulous!"


Vladimir ("You're lucky you're still breathing") Putin is thinking: "Not only won't Little Rich Boy know what hit him, . . . he's so stupid he'll never even know he's been hit."


Paul ("So I wasn't born rich, . . so what?") Manafort is thinking: "The world? . . . Who cares as long as I'm flush?"

CAPTION in honor of the future Screwed World Order

"My gloves are XL!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!



Donald ("Who cares about the Olympics? . . . I love real sports . . . like pro-wrestling") Trump is saying: "Where does it say that freedom of speech means you can say anything, regardless of the truth? . . . Just where? . . . I mean if you say something, you should be held accountable, right? . . . Just why is it repressive if we ask people what other people are saying? . . . Like about me, for instance? . . . I mean why do we have courts, anyway? . . . And our fabulous prison system! . . . With the press it's even worse. . . . The media would have you believe that jailing reporters would have a freezing effect on the First Amendment. . . . But just look who's talking! . . . Why it's the lying, disgusting media, the worst creatures on earth, that's who. . . . How can you believe anything they say, . . . especially when they play the victim card? . . .But, you know, I love the Constitution like you wouldn't believe! . . . Let me tell you . . ."

"Make mine double-extra-super sized!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




(On edit I changed what to the inattentive might be taken for fact. Yet it tracked with the Alex=Jones type of wacko theory.)

Donald ("So I told her, 'If you're not a vegetarian, you have to swallow") Trump is saying: "And you wouldn't believe it, folks, what we're finding out. . . . I'm hearing from expert sources, . . . unimpeachable, these people, . . . what they say is gold, . . . from God's lips. . . .They're finding that Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rotten Clinton were sending arms to ISIS through their extra-terrestrial network which is dedicated to bringing the Califate into being, but I donno. . . . That just what they're saying."
