ambiguity

Terrorism and martyrdom,

affluence and poverty,

heresy and orthodoxy,

wisdom and stupidity,

vice and virtue

-- like beauty --

are in the beholder's eye,

and in the speaker's tongue.

For texts paginate sight

and contexts color vision;

discourses inform utterance,

and clubs set taste.
