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

The Final Act

The play itself wasn't great
It made me cry, and laugh a little
But mostly it was all about time
How it is fleeting
And how catastrophes and miracles
Are rare
The final act is exciting
Because there is finality
No cures for fatal diseases
No amazing rescues
Just stalks of grain being culled
For a final harvest
And everyone running
Without legs
To flee
