me & my ladder*
me & my ladder at a photo gig, taken by boho boy
i needed a ladder,
to look down at my subjects.
that angle is so flattering and whimsical.
like angels are looking down on my beauties,
and i capture this connection.
i didn't want a medal ladder.
a typical home store one.
i wanted something unique.
so i imagined it and waited for it to come.
my husband moved to a new school.
he found a ladder in the art room garbage.
it was petite...just like me.
it was splashed with paint.
someone painted "step ladder", on the steps.
my husband phoned me;
"I have a surprise for you."
he brought it home,
my face lit up.
my ladder found me.
i wished it into being.
now i take it with me everywhere,
to look down on my beauties,
and capture what the angels see.
she said i had six angels,
watching over me.
one of them brought this ladder to me.
