Ever feel like you are see-through?
Like all your dreams and mistakes
are on display,
ready to be operated on
by the bystanders who need to live vicariously.
Ever feel like a ghost who
lost its sheet on this rainy London street
famous for housing another ghost
of a brilliant detective
who actually never walked on this street at all.
You'd like for him to be true, though.
To hire him to look for your sheet
and for any remaining bit of privacy
you might have.
