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.

Heated Conversation

He wants to turn the furnace up;
She wants to turn it down.
The battle goes on endlessly
Though neither makes a sound.
Their constant readjustment of
The thermostat goes on
With sly manipulations when
One thinks the other’s gone.

Their love life’s growing chillier
With every passing day,
For neither’s giving up the fight—
Each wants the final say.
The scorecard shows that neither wins;
There’s no chance for a draw
‘Til he decides it’s time to chill
And her heart starts to thaw.
