The work of art may represent a towel. Zeno is a pre-Socratic philosopher remembered for philosophical paradoxes of impossibility, such as Achilles and the Tortoise (see modern fractal illustration). The poem suggests several meanings the towel may be intended to convey, and ends in apparent exasperation summed up in the first line in Timedancing and Poems 1980-2008 which paraphrases Gertrude Stein's famous, 'Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.' The symbolic meaning of the art, if any, eludes the poet.
