Hunger Management

What bites, from first to last, are the chews in between, not counting the calories or the carbohydrates. Meals are metered, however, scaled to size by stressors and body type. Designed are nutritional stomach staple solutions to keep the food out, in proportion perspectively. Normally, to manage hunger, we strike or binge just a tinge, as gauged by perturbance or protuberance of the belly.

Hunger Management

What kind of newborn appetite do we have

When the
Faint-headed feeling,
Intestine growling alarm,
Belly-button blinking
Indicates time to replenish energy?

As formulaic science
As rudimentary nature
Consumption and digestion
Documented as regularity--the vitality
Of purging toxins, of retaining nutrients
Opposing rancor languor for a healthy hue.

To latch and nosh, to bite and chew--
The swallow, the rush, the belch.
