Frenzy by Diana Manister

In submission on February 5, 2009 at 10:57 pm


This visual poem occurs at a point in my long text poem concerning a combat veteran whose memories of what was done in war are being unsuccessfully repressed. Alfred Hitchcock’s murder mystery Frenzy about a London murderer triggers memories the poem’s narrator would rather not recall. The movie and actual combat recollections mix in the confused mental state the subject is experiencing.
