Down By Laura
He adores a dead femme, cruelly killed
By this "Laura" his R.E.M. sleep is filled
Stirring steamy, deep urges,
From his dreams she emerges
He's both floored and dementedly thrilled.
Gene Tierney is Laura (Otto Preminger; 1944), and Dana Andrews is Detective Mark McPherson, just one of the men obsessed with her. Title by downy David Cairns.
