The Origins of Fuzzy Logic

i.m. Lotfi Zadeh 1921-2017

When she called to cancel

dinner, she offered

no excuse, said that

something had come up,

a phrase that got me


about the elasticity of truth.

I called her back,

hung up

before she answered,


that a missed call

can create a fresh truth,

one that begs

to be uncovered.
