About this verse:
Because (briefly, by the way)
Compositions call for clear clarifications.
Doubtless distinguished Dons discern and identify
Each essence easily, whether existential or ephemeral,
Fine fruits forever forbidden, or hidden, to other fine folk.
Hard work and repeated readings
Inspires illumination. Not-so-idle thought infers or identifies
Jumbled, juxtaposed meanings,
Keen observations, Kafkaesque imagery or
Linguistic contortions; all are liable to leap out, be
Made more manifest, as if by magic. The hidden? unbidden? forbidden? meanings make you smile
Now that you've read what the poet meant; now that all your hard work's been done.
