Strawberry Stem

I feel strangely detached today,

As if my sensations where those of someone else, describing it to me through imperfect metaphors.

I eat a strawberry and want to enjoy the flavor,

But just a second later, the taste has already faded away into oblivion.

Remaining is just the fact, that I am sure of having just eaten a strawberry

Along with the slowly decomposing strawberry stem.
