       This is intended to refer to one of the many possible associations/interpretations of Wallace Stevens great poem:
    Anecdote of the Jar. 1919(?)
    It's an easy way to go because it does not attempt to go into literary criticism concerning Moderism, etc.

    I enjoyed writing it, especially because I'm very interested in the American Civil War.

    dotsA Simple Aside to Wallace Stevens,dots

    The jar left in Tennessee-
    The South will never go down!
    Still soldiers surround the fertile town.
    Pick up the jar,
    next to you ear.
    You can still hear the
    rebel yell,
    whipping in the sunbaked,
    scorched wind.
    Enough time will never be.
    The blue hued sky
    still resented,
    as Yankee imposition,
    'round here.
    In that wilderness
    lie many inert rows of
    prime young men
    shot dead,
    at close, sickening aim,
    Right here in gray Tennessee.
    Mauled and slaughtered,
    in the most greatest,
    and profoundly horrible action.
    And amidst the dust
    Only the insensible jar
    stands erect,
    in 2006.

      First think I thought when I read this was, "How joyfully sad!" This was a neatly written piece. What I saw was a bundle of feelings and emotions symbolically placed in a jar. It is not of course the greatest feeling having friends and loved ones die as I had watched mine drop like flies. But none the less that had feeling and was a good write
