Day 1489

…Now here I sit

A testament to the lie

Of the five second rule

That carrot

See

Fell so graceful from my plate

And I

With reflexes sharpened from years of gin and video games

Retrieved the errand legume

With time to spare on the clock

But when my prize entered its tomb

Along with excess vitamin C

Came a single strand

Of unidentified hair

The bulb still hanging limply from the end

And now

Here I sit

Head in hands

Unsure

When

If ever

My appetite will return

And whether or not

Any carrot is ever worth this pain…
