Still Life

There is a painting that hangs on the wall at school. It sits at the end of a very long, very white hall. All of the doors open when the bell rings and hundreds of children pour out of the classrooms. They run into each other in their rush for the doors that lead outside. The painting stay still. It is the painting of a young girl in a pale blue dress. She sits on her white four-legged stool. At her feet sleeps a small shaggy dog. You can see in her sweet smile the love and adoration she holds for the dog as she leans down to rub its ears. No one notices the painting as they mill about in the hallways, calling out to friends and looking at their phones. Then one day it is taken down and replaced with another painting. No one notices.
