Tanka Type - Poem by Oskar Hansen

Obscurant poems
Complicated word puzzles
Several meanings
Gives poetry a bad name
For those who like clarity

Do you mean a butterfly?
No, a caterpillar
Or maybe a swimming style
Something of short duration

Thank you very much
I shall treasure this always
Your profundity
But I fail to understand
The point of obscurity
