Dietary Ruminations - Poem by June Stepansky

Before there was cholesterol,
before there was fat and sodium,
there was just food.
You liked it or you didn’t.
You could eat
whipped cream
ice cream
lemon pie
prime rib
Now each choice is
calculated, measured, researched,
each meal an agonizing dialogue.
Captain Kirk, beam me back to the past,
before I began to read labels,
before I knew anything.
I long to sit down to dinner again
and just savor it!
