rabbits, Samuel, and the answer 'maybe'

I woke up to a rabbit gnawing on the fencepost of my dream
much in the same way
that old men might eat asparagus.

Since then
I've had adagio for strings
for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
when i was 12, Mr. Lee told our history class
that Barber had created
the closest thing to war
that wasnt war.

And that
If we wanted to keep our 'yes'es meaning yes,
and our 'no's meaning no,
we should only ever answer with maybe.
