IDEA TWENTY-TWO: "Plainsong"



The song by The Cure thundering thru the speakers at Imax theaters while footage of the destruction of the World Trade Center plays on the screen in super artsy colors. Possible slo-mo of towers of smoke rising in place of steel.

No faces...at most only silhouettes.


"i think it's dark and it looks like rain" you said

"and the wind is blowing like it's the end of the

world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the

cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for

a second.



"i think i'm old and i'm in pain" you said

"and it's all running out like it's the end of the

world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the

cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for

a second



sometimes you make me feel like i'm living at

the edge of the world like i'm living at the edge

of the world "it's just the way i smile" you said


--"Plainsong", by The Cure
