It makes me dizzy just looking at it because most things are in the air and sideways. The bride looks like a candy wrapped in foil. There’s a ghostly figure at the bride’s side. The bride doesn’t notice him. She looks at us with very sad eyes. Her veil is as white as snow, and her dress is as red as blood. A goat is playing a violin. It reminds me of an orchestra. The velvet piano gives out music, and the wind shudders. The fish almost blends with the sky, holding a candle that lends him light. In front of the church, they marry with no cake or music, only the rustle of the wind through the bouquet. Angels are watching every move. They wait to see what happens.
