North Korean Soldiers

North Korean Soldiers

In the photo of the North Korean soldiers
can you zoom in on the woman marching
on the far left, the one with the fewest
medals on her chest and a mouth
like the petals of a baby flower,
the one holding her Kalashnikov
as if it were a Stradivarius?
God, she doesn’t want to be there.
Is that why she’s the prettiest?
