Before doing centrist Op-Eds, Frank Bruni

was chief restaurant critic for The New York Times,

Top Chef guest judge and struggled with bulimia…

 

Though some fat or sassy ragazine guidelines

caveat their submitters, Do not write about writing,

I assume we poets are among our top-heaviest

 

consumers of poetry: so how does it feel

for you now after that feast-of-acceptances

gobbledygook gorge’s followed by publication famine

 

of pan-African proportions greater than when half

the tattered inhabitants of Timbuktu starved

in 1738-56, hunger beyond any known

 

statistically significant shortages

within a twenty-five hundred year recorded history

of food reviews by the civilized literary world?
