All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Sorites Paradox and me
Nominative


My predicate nominative
could be
anything that defines --
a liter left of soul
is still an ocean.
No stone could skip my body
until time ends
for me,
the stone and my flinger.

Unless, I'm ash?

Then, I'm a heap.
It would be possible
to be
forever,
even if just
a granule of bone remains.

Scatter my last message
by invisible forces.
I'll cling to your hearts,
somehow.
You won't know I'm there
dreaming, imagining a way
to be
the nominative in young hearts --
fertile in minds, futile in flesh.

I'm not defined by,
but limited from,
you
unless my truth
can be
accepted...
then,
I am not?


(begs the question mark...etre?)

And not to be...nominative:

Imagination grew as I continued to chase, after I sought definition of 'parse'
Is this what poets do? To be??

A beautiful mind is still terrible to taste?
