Ritual. Is there a ritual to writing poetry?

Two (not mutual exclusive). (1) Whatever it takes for inspiration. (2) Whatever it takes to create a writing discipline. Candles, do no harm. Neither the cat. Neither a cafe. Nor a museum.

Hunger is a personal ritual to cooking. As is the desire to feed people. Cooking inspires poems; I know this personally.

    for a message torn apart

    rimple the tide
    and begat
    the fridge, that
    is the dimple
    and the ballyhooter
    finds its wind,
    not sopped,
    but pater-oblong

    the cages liken their
    treefolds, so we

    doesn't, can't do
    any better dives
