Lot of ghosts here, most of them your own. This mirror’s not cracked so much as on holiday from itself & you’re bored with the personal lives of the detectives & the footsteps in the hall. & someone was just now saying, At the corner of the stair! & someone else goes, Sure you were. Sure you were. & so she says, It’s been an eye opener this whole situation. The fact is you’re on the short side of everything now, where all you get’s the sound of a man scraping the end of a piece of pipe & there’s a minute’s worth of change every minute & it puts you a long way from the things you felt were near.
