In the Beginning

In the Beginning

Before writing
is published,

it is raw rhubarb,
sour to the senses. 

is much easier now

than during the
quill and inkwell days,

But editing is still
more chore than treat.

There will always be a better 
word to be found,

a more precise 

a sweeter 
sound of rhyme.

I suppose God
wishes our

useless appendix
was so easily remedied.

But then, that work 
took a mere seven days.
