She Soldier

Photographer: Delil Souleiman

When you are a fighter,

there are no shopping sprees

only shooting sprees

There is no shampoo froth,

only the foam of sarin gas

There is no conditioner

only conditioning

There is no perfume

only the stench of death

There are no matching colours

only camouflaging khaki

There is no feminine

just the emasculation of the military
