Pun in "Anecdote of the Jar"?
Could the line, "And tall and of a port in air." be a pun--a play on the words "of important air" as in haughty? ... perhaps a reference to the dialect of Appalachia?

It seems to me that the poet refers to civilization.The jar's getting ride of its small and surrounded place stans for the growing of civilization little by little.
