Crystal Ball Bearing
The mist of tomorrow now clears
and into the future he peers
The drinker foresees
his liver disease
and so to cirrhosis, says "Cheers!"
A bottle becomes a crystal ball to Ian Kieth and Tyrone Power in Nightmare Alley (Edmund Goulding, 1947). There's more on Power and this amazing, mesmerizing film at Self-Styled Siren, here. Photo: Self-Styled Siren; en.kendincos.net
