Troy: The Movie

You may have heard me say that John M. Ford is a genius. Exhibit 1 of n is, of course, "110 Stories"; Exhibit 2 is the poem "Troy: The Movie":

You know from the first Cinemascope frame
An endless expanse of Monument Valley
Elmer Bernstein score thundering, soaring,
That Achilles and Hector cannot both walk into the sunset alive;
The whole 70mm screen isn't big enough for the two of them.

You know, that "Troy: The Movie."

Thanks to Electrolite, I now discover that it is available online. (It is, of course, also in the NESFA collection From the End of the Twentieth Century.) Everyone, go read it. You won't be sorry.
