day four.

december sixteenth.

fashloom is a bride with a scratched face,
an abused daughter being married off
to a merciful man, she is glowing

draped in red and green,
lights drip from her neck 
and wrists like gold,
her mahr hanging from 
her earlobes, shining.

her cousins dance in the street,
clapping and stamping,
singing songs
to send her off
to her new life.
