Poetry: “Everyone From High School is Getting Married” by Jackie Sabbagh

I arrive at the zinfandel-vineyard wedding in a lipstick-pink wrap dress with light jade-green nails. /At the altar, the groom expands his mouth to the size of a small Grecian grotto and swallows the bride.”

Jackie Sabbagh uses slight surrealist imagery, grounding details, and tactful language to create a moving and distinct poem.
