barbie takes a victory lap

when

creative muse

and

longtime friend

barbie

the real thing

asked for help

on her latest project

a big night

mixing

comedy, fashion, art, adventure, food, wine

all in support of detroit artists

raising money

for future

collaborative creative projects

 i imagined myself

working

at the door

setting up

bartending

catering

helping models get ready

doing whatever

needed to be done

until

she asked me to wear

one of her designs

a statement dress

in the 50s style

all pink and flowery

with a

prom-like innocence

in the front

tiny birds nesting in my hair

 flowers on my heels

and a glimpse

of something more

a corset

and  

 peek-a-boo fabric

in the back

then

a text

‘oh, and

you’ll be

carrying a dog

with you

on the runway’

a sweet little chihuahua, emmy

dressed in a pink tutu

we stepped out

of our comfort zone

onto

the runway

and

into

a

great adventure

in spite of our fears

we even got

an audience vote

that read:

‘the one with the dog’

no one was immune

from

barbie’s recruiting

even her husband

with his

band of merry men

 fellow attorneys

ready to do battle

outside of the office

and

way beyond

the courtroom.
