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

It will end some day

without a care
the ocean a body
breathing in and out
while the world
has lost the will
in reflection
the ocean tide rising
falling away
washing the shore
without intention
the beach laid bare
the crows look afar
from the empty world
humanity unredeemed
fallen and gone
human plans
in complete recession
to the point of extinction
