Jar grows as anecdote in our general story
Quite jarring on the wilderness that grows
Around it and sprawls with new meanings,
Meanings are tough to the hard of tooth.
A way cookie crumbles , meanings change.
Meanings are a wilderness around the jar.
Poems are tough cookies about a Wallace.
In the end they are urns of Grecian beauty
Where piped music is frozen to its eternity.
Jar is round and tall ,with a dominion over
The wilderness that gives of bush and bird
A jar is just ajar,letting in newer meanings.
(Reading Wallace Stevens’ poem Anecdote of the Jar)
