ESP

Knowing from the ringing tone
Whether anyone was at home

Looking at a face in a photograph
Knowing whether its owner
Was alive or dead

Walking into a room
Telling an assemblage of strangers
How and when they would die

tell me your phone number
show me your photograph
lend me your nail clippings
