LE BON, LA BRUTE, LE TRUAND


The marquee poster of THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY
is sort of confusing. They all look pretty handsome to me.
Perhaps it is their mustaches and their glaring eyes
because they all have that. One, I think his name is
Clint, has a well-trimmed beard and a cigarillo. 
One has a pistola. No one smiles, but that is nice, too.

I think this movie should be called
THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE HANDSOME.
They are all so good looking.
This movie was realized by Sergio Leone.

And isn’t it interesting that bad, in French.
has a feminine article. Here it is simple the.
I don’t think that’s right. But it doesn’t make 
cowboys less appealing. Or the movie less enticing.
Or less mouth-watering.

Maybe it’s just the background on the poster.
It’s burnished and yellow.

It almost looks like a chicken pot pie.

Salmon tartare with a dab of 
creme fraiche flavored
with fennel and dill

Now here comes the funny part:


resting on a waffle potato chip.


If down goes the airplane
would I clutch the arm of a stranger
and say “I love you”?

I would! And if I did she would say:
“I love you too!” and then she would
say: “I have loved you all my life!”

And I would say “But we just met!”
And she would say “True, but...”
–and then we would die.



People are strange.
