a public sonnet for a public candidate
UN-COUNTED SONNETS (UCS) 006-009 / rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonet form

On 9/29/99 at the Beverly Hilton hotel Warren Beatty spoke
about paving the way for someone else to run for president
BUT a lot of people couldn't tell what he was saying {smile},
and, anyway, were under the impression that he was going to
announce he was running himself ... so that's what they heard.

In any case ... Courtney Love's lips touched my ear that night,
and this is what I'd meant to tell Warren ...
