Editor in Chief

of all things      
He is          
         
Strengthens          
weakened wordsmithery          
         
Straightens grammatical slips          
as crooked crowns          
for light to shatter          
their misplaced dolor          
into a billion shards          
of written color          
         
He doesn't tame strays          
allows metaphors to escape          
from a page's confines           
honors nonconformed originality          
         
Not-so-subtle Analogies          
reach a meaningful          
bearing of witness          
between like-minded Spirits          
         
He rain dances          
through cracks of drought          
with  indigenous faith          
until inspiration sprouts          
         
When clouds smear azure          
and drowning lakelets rise          
he navigates beyond blindness;          
persistently carrying Us          
         
Editor in Chief          
He is:          
         
Capt'n and co-author          
of this fairytale:          
pirate, first mate          
magic plank to walk          
across sharks of doubt          
   
II  
         
Wicked witch of the Kingdom          
( because there's one
in every true love story )
         
watches, fans flames of jealous discord          
oblivious to growing resentment          
in her own garden          
until seeds she's sowing        
become a flame that burns      
her forked tongue    
     
Casting a spell of division          
to reclaim what she abandoned          
ignorant of the fact          
it doesn't belong to anyone          
         
Everybody watches          
to see how it will end--          
who will win          
         
But, We've learned          
neither exists through experience;          
it's all relative beginnings         
         
Editor in Chief          
He is          
         
To an everlasting story:          
Romeo and Juliet          
Paris and Helen          
Orpheus and Eurydice          
Shah and Mumtaz          
     
It's not good versus evil to Us:      
    
it(')s Love preserved          
monumental as Sol--          
it(')s light upon the Taj Mahal          
         
~
