The poem has irony throughout the verses.
One example is shown in the following lines: “To converse with the greats / by trying their blindfolds on (1-2).” The greats are known to know and see everything and everyone, but she speaks to them by trying on their blindfolds that blind them.
Another is in the next couple of lines, “to correspond with books / by rewriting them (3-4).” Books are already written, yet she is rewriting them.
There is also an example in line 5, “to edit holy edicts,” holy edicts are official orders that cannot be edited.
In line 7 as well, “to talk with the clock by tapping a wall,” clocks are known to make ticking noises as if they’re tapping the wall, and she is speaking to them by tapping the wall as well.
Finally, in the last line, “in the solitary confinement of the universe,” the universe is crowded with people, yet she speaks of solitary.
It was a confusing, but it’s clever.
