First Layer/First Line - Some pastry: a line of fluff (vulnerability, flowery metaphor, etc.)
Second Layer/Second Line - Some spinach: a line of strength (think Pop-eye) - Or mentioning vegetables or plants gets you bonus points
Third Layer/ Third Line - Some cheese: a line of melty goodness (or high cheesiness)
Repeat these layers, and top (at the bottom) with something extra crunchy crispy. Perhaps a couplet.
The poem should leave the reader feeling sated, satisfied, fulfilled, enriched, nourished.
