Bride Price (MLMM Photo Challenge 129)

image credit:

The bride price paid –

chest full of gold for chestfull daughter’s pride

Off she was sent to her new home

tethered, leathered, and spread

so her bridal cage skirt spanned islands

She counted days

worked at leather on bridal chair

til blood drops called

sharks to release her

from false promise

of bride’s price

I love dialogue. Do you?
