I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

From a Stranger to an Absent father

Yeah I saw him
He said he had to go
But he gave me this note
And asked me to read it to you
Very slow...

"To whom this should concern

Waited so long
But you never showed
You never do what
You don't want to do
Yeah I waited
For quite the time
Waited forever
I thought we said...
Never mind!
Because you won't be bothered
By the things of the past
You can't be reminded
Of the ways you wouldn't want to be
A father
To someone who means nothing to you
Because you were just a sperm donor
To an unwilling patient
And I was the result
Of your fucked up science.


You want the note
Or should I toss it?
