In his opening scene, Jack leans languorously against his ancient truck.

"M" is mangling

While herding sheep on Brokeback Mountain, Ennis and Jack spent a few nights mangling their way through some songs:

Ennis knew the salty words to "Strawberry Roan." Jack tried a Carl Perkins song, bawling "what I say-ay-ay, but he favored a sad hymn, "Water-Walking Jesus," learned from his mother who believed in the Pentecost, that he sang at dirge slowness, setting off distant coyote yips.

"N" is numbingly

Disentangling himself from a numbingly passionate clinch with Jack, Ennis pulled himself together and rejoined Alma upstairs in the apartment.

An air of tense melancholy was overhanging the boys' last day together by the lake.

The bittersweet pang that Jack felt, remembering back to the dozy embrace on their last day together, was palpable by film viewers.

After they had reconnected at the reunion, Jack and Ennis rearranged their lives so they could see each other several times a year.

The last day on Brokeback, Jack tried to playfully lasso Ennis.
But Ennis wanted none of it, trying to escape and tangling the lasso before the fight started.

"W" is wiser

Four years after that fateful summer tending sheep up on Brokeback, an older and presumably wiser Ennis, who had "wrang it out" a thousand times thinking about Jack, expressed regret that he had ever let him out of his sight.
