One Line Five Ways

Overheard: Can you eat a smoothie?

Where it took me: My daughter texted this line that she overheard. Looking at it on screen made me wonder where the emphasis was supposed to go in the sentence: what had the person actually been asking? There is a poetry prompt that challenges you to create a poem by repeating the same line with different emphasis. This line seemed perfect for that construction.
