Hello All. My second book of poems has been released by Yorkshire Publishing. The collection titled "Complexions of Being" provides a poetry sample written from 2019 to 2022.  My poems have also appeared in the PoetrySoup anthologies titled PS: It's Poetry and  PS: It's Still Poetry. Other poetry credits include Dissident VoicePick Me Up Poetry, The Magnolia Review, The Opiate Magazine, and Tuck Magazine. My poems have won awards in recent Poetrysoup poetry contests.

Over several decades, my poems were published in numerous small press journals. Through Black Buzzard Press, I published a chapbook of poems titled "Native Steel” in 1982. I have also written published short fiction. Over the years, my stories have appeared in The Lake Superior Review, Intuitive Explorations, Baltimore's Lite Literary Magazine, and Alien Skin.  Feel free to contact me if you would like further information. Thanks!

My poetry book "Collections of Being" can now be purchased on, and Barnes& It can also be purchased on the Yorkshire Publishing website,

"Thomas Wells' poetry explores identity through various lenses such as self, music, imagination, and history. One is impressed by the fearless nature of his work. He opens up about age, race, gender, identity, and politics. All of these issues are so vital to our community right now. Lush language moves the reader through poems about who we are and who we should become. In "From Stars" Wells writes: "What then is our place in the universe?" He invites the reader to discover the human among the infinite." - Alissa Simon, poet, and tutor.

Thank you for your love and encouragement, Beata! I first published a chapbook in 1982. Then, I stopped writing poetry for decades. I finally picked it up again in 2019, and this book is the result.
