JAMES POLLOCK

This medium who sees visions at a distance

and reveals them to you upon demand,

channels all she can with the assistance

of one remote control to guide the hand.

The full depth of the trance all this induces,

transfixing the eye with what it views,

depends on the emotion this produces,

and on how much grief one has to lose.
