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.

Elvish Presley

He couldn’t be more than five years old but
His mane would do a rock star proud. His parents
Clearly know a legend when they see one;
They tease and mousse their little prodigy
Until his decoupaged pompadour can’t
Be mussed by breeze or shower or nuclear
Winter. A pair of shades and an emphatic
“Thank you very muuuch!” greet strangers who think
He’s both cute and strange. Does any parent
Really expect a healthy teen to sprout
From a poor sawed-off copy of “the King”?
I just hope he doesn't leave the building
Unsupervised...
