I DO by Shushan Avagyan Installation by L. Bourgeois, 1999-2000 Trapped in a white dress of crochets I step forward to hold his thick arm. I am offered the blush apple tartness, served on a silver hook. I take a small bite. Juices trickle down my chin onto the bleached lace of my bridal dress stains of blood. Poison seeping through all inside my veins. He gently lays me down into the crystal coffin. Our marriage bed. -- Shushan Avagyan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. She is currently working on her master's degree in English Literature, and is a recipient of the Dalkey Archive Press fellowship at the Illinois State University.
