Between Lovers: Poetry As For Play

Written from the perspective of a 100 year old woman who single-handedly changed the face of art. She is the unidentified woman you see in every picture of men artists. She is the one who is wearing the interesting hat and she is the one who influenced the well-known men with her erotic and surrealist ideas.
