The Private Newspaper

Here it is, fresh from the press,
one edition, a solitary print,
the major headline is for me to know
and every lede is exhumed and
stretched out like a tanning hide –
I will ask,
“did you see the paper?”
“no, of course not,”
because it has served its purpose,
spread no gossip and revealed many truths –
I should like to make another some day,
some day,
when there is something new to examine.
