Poem: A first on TV

This is the twentieth century,
you are there, preparing to skin
a human being alive. Your part
will be to remain calm.

–David Ignatow

Chilling. Captures the irony and horror of watching death on TV. Don’t forget that every smart bomb we see exploding on TV is someone’s death. It only looks like a video game.
