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.

Topless

It's such a glorious day. The sun is shining,
The air is fresh, and I need a little freedom.
Drop the top!
Cruise the backroads, a casual trip
Along the twisty blacktop.
Rumbling engine, rumbling tires, rumbling spirit
Ready to drop the hammer at any moment and
Flee the limits that slow my life down
To a crawl.
My trip will end soon enough; I'll go back home,
Back to the city with its clogged four-lanes
And timed stoplights…
But not yet. For now the sun will shine on my face,
The wind will muss my hair,
And I will enjoy technology and nature all at once.
This is truly the open road.
