Death in a High Place
by Tylie Shider
In public, Ryan and John are freelance painters. Privately, Ryan daydreams about a life in the Oval Office, while John works in paralyzing back pain; two men living paycheck-to-paycheck in a city more concerned with rapid development than the livelihood of its natives.
