#424: Five Answers to the Same Question (a poem for April 18, 2022)

I

In a sense, yes.

II

In another sense, perhaps
in the sense with which you mean it,

III
Maybe. A good word.
Ambiguity is everything–
and nothing.

IV
I like the cut of your jib.

V
I hadn’t considered it,
but I will take it up with
the management.
