Welcome


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

SNAKE



Timeless is the serpent visage
Devoured of its own tail
Inwardly it invests
Deeply its own viscera
While we flail
At the ignominious end
Of our own time
Eternity devours nothing
But dreams
But lives
And consumes nothing
But sleep
But the earth and skies
Destroying everything of matter
For the truth of the why
We beg for knowledge
Rejecting all wisdom
We detest the truth
While demanding proof
There is nothing but
The eternal and matter
Coexisting in infinity
While we beg for the key
To knowing what
When the answer
To the question why
Is that which would allow
Being free
Instead of the gnawing cancers
Of screaming at the sky
