if I were a movie, which would I be?

“The Searchers”?

“Its a Wonderful Life”?

“The Best Years of Our Lives”?

“Pride and Prejudice”?

“The Princess Bride”?


why do so many things

begin with “The”?

as though this particular thing

were most particular of its things

even a movies second final word

is “The”

like there will be no other ending



so many words

and every other one is “The”

even though it means nothing

(being as generally particular as it is)

but likes being invited to the party

enough to come to almost all of them


maybe I would be “Rear Window”
