The painting leans up against the chipped and stained concrete wall. A somber soldier ties a blindfold around its eyes and, lacking a visible mouth, sets a lit cigarette on the bottom edge of its frame. "Any last requests?" The painting says nothing. Six rifles crack in the dawn air. The soldiers release their collectively held breath as the artwork falls over in the the dirt. It's dragged away and hung in an unmarked gallery.
