Freeze-dried drama. About a week after it all happened I see the Benetton ad on the London Underground. A black hand takes a baton from a white hand. Both are fuzzed by motion. Across the bottom right-hand comer is the date, 27 April 1994. Green numbers on yellow, red, black, blue, enough colours to rival the new flag. The United Colours flag. A man leans up against the edge of the ad frowning. There are no trains and the air is smokey. I am very far away from where I was last week. I don't know how commuters read this image. This is not how it was at all.
