Heya! My name is William Soule: poet, health nerd, and raiser of Bronē pit bulls. I currently study Health Promotion at Weber State University where I earned my Associate of Science degree; I also work as a Nutrition Lab Aid, Supplemental Instruction Leader, and tutor there. I'm also a former volunteer here for the literature gallery (we were called Gallery Moderators back then!), but now I'm sitting in the background as a quiet dA senior.

My poetry has appeared in both online and print magazines, such as Gargoyle, Foundling Review, Alba: A Journal of Short Poetry, and Tattoo Highway, among others, and I've received the 3rd place award for the 2010 DAVID F. & ROBERT BALPH MEMORIAL. Okay, nothing too impressive, but I am working on a full-length collection of poetry that I hope to release sometime in late 2017... maybe 2018.

Degree, new poem, updates, and shit.

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 15, 2016, 12:04 AM
Just wanted to offer a small update to whoever reads this shit.

So after two years of college, I've finally earned my Associate of Science in General Studies degree (with High Honors!), so hurrah for me. I plan on graduating with a Bachelor's in spring of 2018. In the meantime, I'm currently doing some undergraduate research with a Nutrition professor analyzing metabolic syndrome parameters in the college students who do the health assessment as part of gen ed. nutrition class. It's pretty fun working with and analyzing data.

If you hadn't noticed, I uploaded a poem simply titled Hello, and is the first original, non-Found piece I've written in more than three years. Go easy on me! It's been difficult to find inspiration, but go ahead and tell me what you think. Do I suck now?

HelloAnd now the word slips in, a hand
down the rough blue of your back pocket,
a gaze that dawdles for too long.
All that you want are the silent moments
between a bank deposit and
the sun-slapped leather of the driver's seat,
or during your stroll down city square.
It is the first word to the phone:
now you know the catcall, the snapping
flag in a hot wind, emblazoned
with that Southern cross—anything of offense;
it is the open door
you did not ask for, the courteous
nod that builds a society, joins
a hand to hand. The hand:
a wave that means you are a dog,
obedient and servile as the woman
in your newest phone, knowledge navigator
that can compass the earth—
its every mote and detail—
as some asteroid belt around the sun, 332.
Hi. An affront,
a coil that shrinks the difference
between us, the million miles
of distance: voice to heart,
reason to brain, to our collective consciousness.
Good day. A smear campaign
against your worthiness, two
bedeviled words
to greet, to gr


Instead of working and doing school, I've been trying to practice a little balance in my life and actually, you know, spend time with friends. Went to a haunted house called Haunted Hollow at the top of the month. It was just us three fellows. Each of us fell to the ground once at different times--one of the actors accidentally slipped on the wet ground and tripped me. My voice started to die on me from all the yelling I was doing, haha. Anyone have any fun haunted house adventures this month?

What else? I don't know. Tell me some shit.

Good day. A smear campaign

to ward the gray of another dismal day
that must end somehow: another
good day, sayonara, adios.

Goodbye.
Hello
Holy smokes, guys. This is the first original poem (meaning NOT a found poem) I've written since July of 2013. More than three years.

Bit of a criticism on over-sensitivity. Must suck when even a simple greeting is enough to set someone off. The problem with overreactions to non-issues like these is that they distract from real issues with harassment and inappropriate conduct.

1st place--hooray!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 16, 2016, 9:25 AM
Woke up to a nice surprise (more specifically, I overslept big time for work) and found I took 1st place in this contest: CRLiterature announces: The OuliPoetry Contest! There were a lot of great entries. You can check out the results here: OuliPoetry Contest: The Conclusion. Many thanks to the judges for running a fun contest. One thousand cookies for all of you.

Congrats to palaeochannel6 for taking the runner up spot with this awesome poem:



Also congrats to the honorable mentions:
Arthisa
womenwhatever ways we went,
wanted, waited,
we went work-weary, whisper-wrecked,
whitewashed.
we were warning,
worry, wrath,
weakness,
willfully.
whatever we were, willowy wonder,
we were wholly warm
waterproofed
whip-wild wet within.
why wonder when
whenever we went, white walls
were willing witnesses,
we wouldn't worry –
we wouldn’t wish – 


ArthurTheBraveOne
MarsfallMars always falls.
Carry a day, play a part;
All hands add laws,
And all ways shall part -
Sharply.
What a man calls a fact
Falls apart, gladly
Mars always falls;
What man calls art
Shall stand – as parts.

Dignity in Cynicismin light wind,
pink birds in flight,
circling in his lids.
I think it silly —
kings sit in cynicism,
insist it is childish.
his thin wings simply, in crisis,
trying things. firm in his will,
his spirit.
I find him prying in wild ivy
with dignity, smiling.





Grandmother
       golden girl, graceful grasshopper, gastronomic guardian
Grandfather
       gentle giant, garden genius, gave great grimaces

grown grandchildren gathered
       grievous, guilty glances:
       gun, glorious gunpowder—
               good God!
Graves
A found poem tautogram for CRLiterature's OuliPoetry Contest! The tautogram limits you to the use of words that begin with a chosen letter. I chose the letter G and had the Applied Poetics website eliminate all the words that didn't begin with that letter from a text I found on the Project Gutenberg website.

Text used: Graham's Magazine Vol XXXII. No. 3. March 1848, Edited by George R. Graham and Robert T. Conrad
