Poetry. Women's Studies. Art. DEMIMONDE means, the half-world. This collection of poems is in the voice of women of that other world, on the fringe, in the gauze of one or another apothecary drams. The prostitutes of frontier Telluride, and other Old West mining towns, come alive on these pages with images that evoke a grayer time when cruelty could be swept aside.
