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.

A Hole in Juan

A jealous husband shot Juan in his bed
(The husband’s bed, that is) and with his wife
(The husband’s wife, that is, not Juan’s). He said
(That is, Juan said) that marriages are rife
With complications no sane man would want
When he could have a ball without the chain!
Juan made it sound so cool and nonchalant—
At least until that bullet hit his brain.

They doctored up his body for the wake.
A dozen women—young and snockered—came;
They swore and made rude gestures. “Hey, you snake!
You would have lived much longer with ‘a chain.’”
And just for fun, they bolted all the doors,
Pulled out some guns and shot him in the drawers.
