I was watching Spongebob until I was interrupted by the 9-11 attacks. Really, I wanted
to look away but every channel was pandering to my morbid curiosity. Ever since then
I’ve been trying to see planes crash into towers and people jumping outta burning
buildings as Fear Factor stunts. I’ve been trying to see otherwise ordinary people
as Marvel heroes and villains, and war theatre as blockbuster fireworks. But this
still hasn’t helped remove the images burned into the plasma screen of my mind. So
I have no choice now but to take it further by untwisting and retwisting the memories
of televised tragedy in order to find my innocent ignorance again.
