Preface

Whoever you see, Whoever you meet, They seem like someone else. In this neighbourhood It's as if no one has an identity.

On the stairs Once again, the sound of someone's footsteps. Once again, someone without a face, Gilt-tongued, stone-hearted. He will come, And smiling, Take away a sliver of my heart.
