I made two mistakes when reading this book. The first time, I didn’t read the first poem carefully enough. The second time, I read it perhaps too carefully and applied it too absolutely.
In my defense, the first poem inhabits the no-mans-land between the table of contents and Part 1. I hope this excuses my first mistake. I always half-read introductions: I’m eager to get to the book itself, to cross the border into the territory proper, to read the book rather than read about it.
