An Anecdote of the Jar
for Wallace Stevens

You placed on the hill of America
The bare jar left by the Samaritan woman
Who had found the living water

You made the jar of gray tall and great
The ash words in which Job sat by regret
As his eyes saw whom his ears had heard

If you could come like an empty jar
To the widow who took Elijah
You'd be filled up with oil
You and your bush
With birds celestial
On your perch

Opened is the scroll
To tilt the jars of heavens
But few are willingly humble
An excuse for you superpowers
