“Bad Blood” Poetry by Akubudike Deborah

a bride walks down the aisle, 

staggers on one foot, 

& you can hear a poet 

stutter like her footsteps at every step.

she hides her form underneath her veil, 

wears her father's corpse on her face 

like the holy candle praying for a future.


when the piano starts to play, we can 


hear frogs croaking to an unfamiliar rhythm, from 

deep down throaty laughs of a certain someone 

or people


alongside ruptured chords.

we all stand,

 not sure what the bridegroom's lips call 

to the altar.
