Squeaker

Squeaker is usually quiet, doesn’t usually go to museums, would never get asked out by the cute guy in her freshman art history class.  Today, the cute guy is next to her at a museum, and an abstract painting is in front of her.  Does she say what she really thinks about the painting, or sacrifice artistic truth for…something else?

Originally commissioned for SF MoMA’s Stories in the Gallery.
