Lola Koundakjian: Life (English version)

LIFE

She dices the onions finely.
A construction worker, 25, falls to his death.

She adds the coriander, cloves and ginger.
A soldier, 21, walks over a roadside bomb.

She removes the meatballs from the fridge
A journalist, 43, gets shot thru the head.

She stirs the sauce over a low fire
and adds a few tears to the pot.
