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.

American Idle

I thought of nothing yesterday;
I’ll think no more today.
I’m something of a specialist
At “mental macramé”:

I’ll “knot” do this, I’ll “knot” do that,
I’ll “knot” do anything
Unless I’m in the mood. I’m quite
Proficient with this string!

So thorough is my idleness,
So ample in its scope,
I weary just to think of it!
And yet, it gives me hope

For sloth this all-encompassing
Must be a form of zen…
I think I’ll take a rest before
I contemplate again.
