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.

Itchy-Sketch

I scratched so hard I left a mark
The itches wouldn’t stop
I scratched so hard I left more marks
Around, beside, on top
My arm is such a messy sketch
Of white and bloody streaks
The doctor says the itch won’t stop
For two or three more weeks
Too bad I can’t just shake it off
And have the itch erased
Instead I have to keep it coated
With a sticky paste
I hope it doesn’t leave a mark
Or feel like old dried cobs—
At least my arm won’t end up with
Two little twisty knobs
