The Art of Death This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

May 9, 2013
Arms ascended heavenwards,
Surrendering to the inevitable.

Blindfold shoved on in haste,
Shielding the upcoming future
From an age-wizened face.

Three. Two. One.
Bullets puncture mocha-colored skin,
Ripping past cotton barriers.

A masterpiece of red, steel, warm flesh.
Artwork worthy of the artists:
The brutal firing squad.
Artwork worthy of the masterpiece:
A martyr succumbing to fate.
