Ghostly errors. Pages 5 to 7

Now that you're poor you have to enter a subway car with faded eyes, holding a bag in his hand.You look vaguely like the present and begin to recite word for word everything that gives you hunger. This squeezes your guts with a vengeance and when you feel in your gut, stomach, humming an old song with a bitter taste.
