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

By Liston Knife he worked


Dear Mary

You were once good looking, and young.
I stole your beauty with my knife.
But you get to live forever, in the memories
Of the people who celebrate my work.
It is a fair exchange, I include you in my legacy.


Yours
Jack
