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

Remove my heart surgically
With love
Remove my viscera
With exquisite and expert mastery
Remove my brain
And all my hysteria
My soul remains
However shallow and empty
My body
A cavernous
Carnal depths
To explore
Is meat
For a great feast
With no soul
I am but a beast
In a world
Without purpose
The absurdity drives me
To utter madness
We are lost
From first to least
Nothing more
Nothing less
There is just a life
Lived for mazes
And tests
We are mice
For cheese
We are not Theseus
Saving the Athenian youth
