Chew on this

The man who chews on his woman
will be poisoned by her gall.
The woman who chews on her man
will end her days as a toothless hag.
The poet who writes of food
will never go hungry.
The poet who describes her friends at the table
will eat her words.
The poet who writes on rice paper
will nourish her critics.
A poem about food will not feed
the starving nations.
Your own mouth will eat you
if you don't watch out.
