A Slice of Life As Bleeding Cheesecake

File:Cheesecake with strawberry and whipped  cream.jpg

We were all going to get a piece of the pie
Though now a microscope may be required.

Eating is the repression of food, the body
And blood of the host organism survives
The triumph of the individual is never anything
But the triumph of the will
To subjugate other existents to one's body.

This poem made me very very hungry

You're right. You can't argue with science. The poem will actually affect my future approach to eating. "Plating" is so weird, but I guess the person doing the "plating" approaches their job in the way they imagine poets, painters and architects do. In general, I wish they wouldn't, especially with dessert because desserts are often so beautiful and by that time in the meal, I really need a respite from "high concept" everything.

I really need a respite from the food chain, I think.

Said the cheesecake to the Doubter.

English derivation: O.E. etan (class V strong verb; past tense æt, pp. eten), from P.Gmc. *etanan (cf. O.N. eta, Goth. itan, Ger. essen), from PIE base *ed- "to eat ". Transferred sense of "slow, gradual corrosion or destruction", from 1550s.

Cf. Latin: *voro, vorare, voravi, voratus* -- to devour; to eat ; and English adjective "voracious"-- wanting or eating lots of food; extremely eager.

Dust to dust, cake to flake, pie to reason why...
