Virulent Valentines (ebook)
Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets. They meter 10 syllables per line.
The lines total 14. Valentine’s Day is on the 14th. A filovirus is 1400 nm long.
The Sonnets betray [to some] that Shakespeare was really
a woman: The Dark Lady~(sonnets 127-152) Amelia Bassano Lanier.
She used stratagem to publish her work, something unheard of
for a woman in Elizabethan London. Her words breathe life to this day.
Viruses never really die, because they are not alive.
They inject their genetic material into a host cell, and assume control.
Love never dies. It carries on in words and songs.
I celebrate the Shakespearean Sonnets, and Love’s perseverance,
despite viral hijack, on this: February the 14th, 2013. **
