Essay: When I Look at a Strawberry, I Think of a Tongue by Édouard Levé

Within this stream of consciousness essay, there were a few sentences I loved:

“I would rather be bored alone than with someone else. I roam empty places and eat in deserted restaurants. I do not say “A is better than B” but “I prefer A to B.” I never stop comparing. When I am returning from a trip, the best part is not going through the airport or getting home, but the taxi ride in between: you’re still traveling, but not really.”

“I like my voice after a night out or when I have a cold.”
