Lee Miller

let’s send you to Paris next
your mind-a-camera-in-hand
go from war bride to warrior

stop off in England
hop a plane back to the herb farm
stretch your body out and we’ll go from there

return to Vogue
bring life to light – to the lens
we will correspond our love and travel between the staples

high gloss art
in-depth eyes – in uniform
wings on your lapel

….my mind wandering to you standing on a New York balcony

* an American photographer – Lee Miller was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1907 A successful fashion model in New York City during the ’20s before going to Paris. During the Second World War, she became an acclaimed war correspondent for Vogue.
