What commonality does shaped food and shaped poems share?

I should add, besides shape.
Shaped food and shaped poems share the element of surprise.

Try this experiment. Take a rice salad (forbidden rice, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, herb of your choice, olive oil, pepper, nuts of your choice, avocado cubed). Fill a small rammaken with rice salad. Invert. Top with cut manilla mango. Heavenly taste. Heavenly shape.

  1. Hypotheticals (continued)

    Our man on the case took out a piece of white paper
    His first words quoted a favorite phrase of a CIA director
    taken from Eliot: "[This is] a wilderness of mirrors" and
    one of his own he thought appropros of the current situation

    "inverted shapes of aprons cannot tell the truth"
    followed by an illustration of an apron
    with an extra pocket in the middle
    and the words warning, go back, get it right
