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.

Make Mine Diet

Carbonated, effervescent, bubbly;
Such is the nature of soda pop people.
Shaken like ragdolls, or churned like an ocean,
Nothing can dampen their spirits. Fizzy
With wonder, each day is a flavor unique
In its own right, a gurgling stream poured fresh
From the narrow neck of an unmarked bottle.
Better, they say, to clamp it tight with a thumb,
Shake till it roils with the surging pressure
Of pent-up hope, then aim it and pray that
The ecstasy spewing full-bore like a
Geyser drenches the needy with excitement…
And the desire for a good long swig of life.
It’s one thing of which I just can’t get enough.
