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

Brain Drained

Drilled and emptied
Ground into meal
And drained
My bones are broken
My brain is removed
And the ice picks and drills
Begin their choking
While the flesh shivers
Beneath the weight
Of the mighty machinery
Modern and modernity
Made specially for
The doctors and shamans
Of my tribe
