Man in the Picture Frame

In the drama monologue, ‘Man in the Picture Frame’ Wilma makes a proposition to Jarott in exchange for helping him hide out.

WILMA: Be quiet! I got neighbors, you know? I got neighbors that like the quiet. (Beat.) I didn’t expect you to react so rudely. Don’t you find me attractive? (Beat.) All kinds of men find me attractive, especially young naive ones, like you. I want you to make love to me, once, just once. I want to close my eyes and imagine you’re somebody else, somebody that used to love me, somebody that I still love. I’m not interested in hair pulling, neck gripping, ego smacking love. I want you to caress my neck, my shoulders. No rushing. Have you learnt how to take your time? Whatever it is that you have inside, whatever it is that you are struggling with, whatever it is that makes you the mess that you are; I want you to turn that into love and pour it in to me.

Doesn’t have to be tonight. Doesn’t have to be next week or next month. Doesn’t have to be next year. But it has to be, at some point, if you want to stay. You can stay here for as long as you need to…if you make good on our deal.
