A poem, composed entirely from today’s New York Times movie review headlines, in the order in which they appear in the Times app.
Meet the boys: A mutual lovefest;
It gets curiouser and curiouser.
Mom comes home with a stripper,
A jaded boomerang returns.
Wandering souls, united in rebellion;
It’s vacation time, grief stalker.
Struggling for mastery of life and limb,
Sisters in arms (and pricey couture).
