ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Artifact

Buried, forgotten, then rediscovered…
By chance? A remnant of my past emerged
While cleaning out some garbage. I was sure
I’d thrown it out; after all, I had changed
And it was an embarrassment to me…
So I ditched it. At least I thought I did.
But there it was – still a slight gleam, even
After so many years of cold neglect.
Amazed, I dug it out and studied it.
I couldn’t believe it still shined so much
After so long. But I guess artifacts
Survive because they have worth. I kept it.
