A Tomos 

A Tomos 

Atom, the name’s a negation
No tom
Or tomos — the uncuttable

The end of the line, or
The end of the point
And what is the point?
The atom

The ultimate point
But that’s incorrect
As we have seen
It can be cut
Einstein upends Democritus

Who argued that only the atoms
Are real
Squares, he said, are simply
Abstractions
Aspects of the Nomos. However,
As it turns out,
Atoms are part of the Nomos
As well. In so many ways,
Observes Heraclitus,
Even the ashes, in essence, are flame
