Dora Maar

Dora Maar's Undeniable Influence: visit

strolling the esplanade
so many Dora Maars

the front door key 
doesn't work --
it's not her front door

with its long forked tongue
a Komodo dragon samples the air

the circus
not as good as the surprise
inside her CrackerJack box

stilt dancers bow
under moon lanterns
