The poem takes a stance against the dominance of analytic thinking. This dominance prevents us from listening attentively for unexpected meanings that may emerge in poetry and instead commands us to treat thought as some sort of purely rational or logical operation undertaken on strictly delimited concepts.

The Darkling Night

 

The darkling night no longer is,

Since its meaning is unclear;

In a world bereft of ambiguities,

All harkening disappears.
