Role of Internalization

Are you aware of the phenomenon
whereby one watches
television shows and craves
the food the characters are eating,
pizza, Chinese food, pancakes,
et cetera, et cetera?
Perhaps you have experienced
this situation yourself.
Fortunately, you are not alone.
Furthermore, this phenomenon
has a scientific name, allowing us
who suffer from it a handle
by which to manipulate it,
and by extension process it:
“monkey see, monkey drool.”
