About Norma

Do you remember when it began, Norma?
They told you that you were neurotic, dying, almost to death.
You waited for it, didn't you?
In its black silk shroud, brandishing its white, pale, soft fingers on your body.
Pills are so easy to swallow with a Scotch.
These failed pornos from your youth twenty years ago, hidden to the public and these exhibited curves.
"You're a whore, Norma!" spews out their mouths.
Things are fun at first, then you cry. On your name you would write 'Artist', but in your roles of faded girls, you get lost along the way.
Weddings and adventures that follow, the Bay of Angels and you, it isn't the same.
And sedatives are a miraculous invention.
Child-wife, brunette with laughing eyes. We've quickly learned to smile in front of objectives.
The nonexistent love of a mother, men by the dozen, beautiful bastards, egos that rise, rise then fall, this image of perfect. Who wants me, takes me!
How many snapshots have been taken of this character that you like to play at times?

There could have been someone, anyone, to open his arms, to take your hand.
Come, we go.
Hollywood fucks us, Hollywood kills us, Norma.
Everyone runs after you. Years pass.
Thank Heaven, we have never seen the old age take your cheeks, and we will talk about you again and again as long as there are women, Norma.
World hurts, Norma, world kills us.
And no matter if it was from your hands or a stranger's, in the end, you just wanted to rest.

A little rest.
