Ephrastic April, Day 26: "Girl Posing in a Hat with Tassels"

"Girl Posing in a Hat with Tassels" (circa 1918-1922) by Gwen John [1876-1939].

Sunday services

befitting her situation
she's dressed in black

this week she adds a tassel
oh, how he would have loved
the joke

I really should read up on Gwen John, the brief Wikipedia biography shows a complex personality who lived an unorthodox life. I guess she's a project for another time...
