Dietary Laws

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.
