Jar on the hill

The poet places a jar on the hill and lets the wilderness grow around it.The jar is empty of cookies but the wilderness grows around it like our meanings.The jar is just an anecdote embedded in our general story but when placed on the hill meanings grow .

Wallace poems are tough cookies to crumble but our meanings grow like wilderness around the jar .

We have our own anecdotes to add to the general story .Our meanings grow several fold around the hill jar, meanings we extrapolate from our private lives. Everyone needs a jar for the wilderness to grow around.
