It never occurred to me.

My inbox is full
Every morning.
I sift and delete,
Read and save.
This morning
I was offered
Walt Whitman’s preface
To Leaves of Grass.
It had not occurred to me
There was a preface.
Leaves of Grass
Always stood
On its own.
Preface there is.
There’s always a preface.
Some are worth considering.
Some not.
There’s always a preface.
