Zeno - Zero


Dad
told us
paradox
arrow never
hits target
goes half
then
three-fourths
seven – eighths
of way - always
more fractions
to pass.
We
get old
we forget
things but never
forget all
forget
half
three-fourths
seven - eighths
not forget all
things forget
all things
not.
Zeno
we know scarce
info of life
of Dad’s life
we know
half
five-eighths
seven - ninths
always is more
story more
info
but
never
remember
all of arrow
paradox
told us
Dad
