Film At Eleven

Film At Eleven

He applies the last of the gauze
with adhesive tape to his fingertips,
reaches for the remote, manages
to power up and punch in Channel 7.

details and interview at eleven,”
intones the baritone anchor.

He runs it back a time or two
freeze-frames the gory keys.
Oh, that’s just great, he thinks,
now everyone will know.
