8: Eight-word Poems Update

Files for the e-book editions have been uploaded to Smashwords and Kindle Direct Publishing for review. I have also uploaded a slightly revised interior to IngramSpark, since I found a numbering error as I was formatting the e-book documents—just the excuse I needed to fix the remaining seven-word poem (which is now eight), and make a word substitution to another poem (so it would make more sense).

8: Eight-word Poems—proofs
