I'm sick and tired of dietary laws.
As a former anorexic and bulimic person, I should be able to eat whatever. As a person with severe food allergies, I should eat whatever doesn't make me violently ill.
Really, poetry constraints are sometimes fun, and so are others, but really, poetry comes from a complete opening and engagement. Doesn't food? Sustaining and wow, tasty.
I'm not writing this as a person who has not been without refrigeration for years, all totaled and told: some practices are, well, practical.
