Heya! My name is William Soule: poet, health nerd, and raiser of Bronē pit bulls. I currently study Health Promotion at Weber State University, and also work as a Nutrition Lab Aid 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.

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
Loading...
a risen ocean—warm ice
carries a massive summer,
a coarse, wave-worn season.

rivers increase or narrow.

corrosive rain across enormous zones—
asia or wisconsin, mexico or missouri:
various areas in succession,
even on roman ruins or vesuvius.

we are worms in a new mesozoic
as a scoriaceous sun oozes
across some sierra. we can see more.
we can see now, our universe.
we can see reason, an answer in our veins.

an answer in some room in america—
a curious minor, six or seven, now insecure
as new axis sea ice or revenue sources—
a minor score: an iron crown worn as a cone

even as a man.
science in common core
A found poem for CRLiterature's OuliPoetry Contest using the "Prisoner's Constraint" prompt, the supposedly easiest prompt of the five. I'm scared to attempt any of the others, as this poem was pretty tough. I used the Applied Poetics website to whittle the text from another work down to words that only contained letters that take up the least amount of space, so no use of these letters: b, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, p, q, t, and y. Not being able to use the word "the" was tough.

Text used: The Elements of Geology by William Harmon Norton as it appears on the Project Gutenberg website.

Spring Break

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 6, 2016, 4:34 PM
Nope, not for partying, booze, drugs, and endless amounts of sex cookies. I'm taking some time to revise some old poems... in fact, some are getting almost completely rewritten. Figured I needed to start working on my collection a little bit, or it'll never get done! Feels good to be writing again, even if it's only reworking with old stuff. I hope to have around 45 poems ready by the end of the year to be shipped off for some critiquing. I'll probably take a poetry class for fun and inspiration, too.

April's also around the corner... Anyone interested to see if I can do NaPoWriMo again? If so, give me some cool poetry ideas!
