moku is food! moku is also eating that same food. in fact, anything that can be eaten can be moku. even if it's not edible, you can use moku to describe it! doing so implies that it is in some context eaten, though, so be careful. There's a quote from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005). "Everything here is edible; even I'm edible. But that, dear children, is cannibalism, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies." Use this ancient wisdom from two decades ago to guide your moku usage.
