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.

Diamonds Are a Man's Best Friend

A concept ad for Saint Viagra,
Patron saint of men who seek sensation.

Blue, oh so blue; my spirit droops with weakness.
No one here can save me; all my passions
Fail me. Limply I collapse, dejected,
Knowing that I dare not share my secret.

Blue, oh so blue; diamonds sparkle brightly.
My trembling hands can scarcely set them free,
Trapped within a bubble, isolated
From the touch of one who needs their comfort.

Blue, oh so blue; received with open arms,
To you my sorrows I can now confess.
You hear, you understand, I take communion;
You are my sacrament; I rise, absolved.

Elation fills my soul; aroused by hope,
I lift my head in victory sublime…
