Meanings grow

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)
