Do you think Uncle Walt would be happy today?
Do you think he would recognize Manhattan?
Do you think Uncle Walt would have something to say?
Do you think?
or just do not know?
Of the former and latter, which would be better?
The former is better, but in saying the latter
would be just as good, ‘cause I think that it shows
that you’re ready and willing for open-end questions.
The open-end questions and the open-end answers
help in the flow of the ‘knows.’
And the open-end questions and the open-end answers
puts to the end of the ‘yeses’ and ‘nos.’
For to think is to ready the open cognition,
and it helps in the flow of the ‘knows.’
My mama once told me
my papa was Toby,
so I said: do you really think so?
In the end when you’re ready with open-end answers,
better to think, before letting it go.
