I'm just gonna throw this out there. If you send a story out for publication and actually include an explanation at the end of your story this is what you are saying: My story is so complex (which it is not) that the editor's will not understand my clever metaphors and similies. Guess what? There's a good chance that story will be rejected. Don't insult the editor's intelligence would be a good rule to follow.
