SPEECH / RE: MAY 17 -
The Meetup At The End of ... Act One {smile}
RHETORICAL VERSE / SHAKESPEAREAN-FORM SONNET

 

THE LINES OF POSSIBILITY are sketched.

The starting point's now marked where it should be.

A thousand sentences will soon have fetched

you out beyond the land . . . above the sea . . .

 
. . . where you will walk the plank{s} and face the end

of what has come before. // WE NOW BEGIN

A NIGHT BEYOND CONTROL -- a special blend

of fragments of your spirit. WHO WILL WIN . . .

 
. . . the Showtime bully pulpit? / Heaven knows.

BUT as you stand and speak and move this night,

may each of us be blessed -- both friends and foes.

No matter who may trump each verbal fight . . .

 
THE PEOPLE'S EYES will tell us how to PLAY

the cards we bring. There is no other way.
