Mexican poet known for her rebelliousness and audacity. During her youth, she was an actress and a model for famous photographers and painters such as Diego Rivera and Raúl Anguiano. Her family was shocked when it was revealed that she had posed—and been portrayed—in the nude. She was called "The 11th Muse". She was a friend of José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and María Félix.

Her poetry, influenced by Juana Inés de la Cruz ("The 10th Muse") and Francisco de Quevedo, is notable for its direct expressions about metaphysical issues stated in the first person.

She was an aunt of the Mexican author Elena Poniatowska Amor, and a descendant of Mexican aristocrats.

She died in Mexico City on 8 May 2000 at the age of 81.
