The first thing that the narrator remembers is the fact that he has been given a death sentence.  He then recalls what the judges looked like, particularly the color of their lips and the fact that they were wearing black robes. This is evident when he says, "I saw the lips of the black-robed judges."  He continues to discuss this image briefly as the story continues.
