Remember the Artist's Model?

Talented poet, respected artist in her own right, notorious beauty - the lady is many things to many people. The two of you have a long and tangled history. Now a host with a sense of humour has sat her next to you at dinner. [You cannot pursue her further if you are already committed.]

Perhaps she is meant for you…
