Banana Pudding Exercise

Eat nothing but banana pudding for 2 weeks. You can have water, but no Butterfingers, beef jerky, or exploding cans of beer. Just banana pudding. Then write your poem. And it will be the greatest one ever. Go!

Isn't this something like what the painter De Chirico did back in the 20s? Except I think he did it out of poverty. Oh and he was painting, not poeming.

I have not read any of this book, though I have heard of it (the title sounds like a self-help book, which I'm always suspcious of). I'll check out the link.
I may do a series of poems in the form of poetry exercises. Poets probably read more exercises than they do poems, anyway, so why not do both?
