Re Life

The Zapruder film. Freeze frame.

Pillbox hat. Oleg Cassini.

Hands at throat.

Who watches this, still, the hundredth time, who watched it then, that week, the hundredth time, and just took it in, maybe an eye muscle tightening, a sympathetic twitch.

To watch death occur.

To hope it turns out different.
