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

we've driven beauty to extinction
in favor of pleasure and ignorance
art is exterminated
as if it is our mission
to feed our indifference
to the world created
we pave forests
kill the creatures
poison the waters
to eradicate our world
by slaying the dreamers
we are fated
to be the destroyer
to be the ones
who slay nature
we commit massacres
of beauty
to replace it all
with buildings
cell phones
