Fat man profile narration

“He’s been maimed -
beyond all recognition.”
said over his corpse
but not dead
may as well be
a Hitchcock sonata
of murder, most foul
carnal anatomy
with a hint of vertigo deception

  1. Alfred Hitchcock was an English director of 53 films, most of which were suspense movies dealing with what William Shakespeare called, in "Hamlet," "Murder most foul as in the best it is / But this most foul, strange and unnatural." He entered the industry at 20, as a title card designer for silent films. Six years later he made his 1st movie, and his "Blackmail" (1929) was the 1st British talkie. In 1939 he moved to Hollywood and won a best Picture Oscar for "Rebecca" (1940). In the 2012 "Sight & Sound" poll, his "Vertigo" (1958) was ranked as the best film ever made; it was his most personal and revealing movie, candidly exploring his interest in the relation between sex and death and the obsessions of a man who crafts a woman into the woman he desires. "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (renamed "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" in 1962) was a weekly TV show that ran from 1955 to 1965, for which he created a famous minimalist (9 stroke) caricature of his profile, which was filled by his silhouette as an introduction to each episode.

  2. Or, as Jim Morrison wrote:

    -I fear that he’s been
    maim’d beyond all

    He hears them come &
    murmur over his corpse.
