I realize the question has already been answered, but that’s never stopped a doper from answering something before, has it? As a general poem deciphering technique, I go through poems line by line and put them in my own words. For instance:
Observe yon plumed biped fine.
Look at the pretty feathered animal with two legs.
To activate its captivation,
To catch it,
Deposit on its termination,
Put on its end (tail),
A quantity of particles saline.
In other words, look at the pretty bird. Salt its tail to catch it. I think Jodi probably has the right idea of what it “means” though. It kind of reminds me of all of the overly verbose love poetry one can find. I don’t know, I think I kind of like this poem. It’s a bit self-mocking and not laugh out loud funny, but it made me grin.
