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.

Yesterday Upon a Stair

Yesterday upon a stair
I saw a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
My family had me put away
For seeing men who weren't there…
But here at this "assisted care"
Facility, I still can see
That man because he followed me.

Supposedly the doctor here
Can make the "sane" me reappear
But he glares from the corridor
As I face my inquisitor.
Her endless questions don't convince
Me that I have no evidence
This poacher of my sanity
Exists and keeps on watching me.

Perhaps he is just in my mind,
A stalker of the psychic kind.
But see that pile of clothing there?
It's not my dirty underwear!
