I slam against the gate of the American embassy. The Marines watch, ordered to keep the gate closed. I plead, beg, but they raise their M16s at me… and at the policemen chasing me. One pursuer, groaning, loses a rotting finger.

I recognize the female Marine. I had begged her for safety for my merely political crimes, back when the police just wanted to torture my flesh.

She slides a revolver with a single bullet through the bars. A tear slips down her dusty, expressionless face. The hungry police shamble down the street. I salute her and raise the pistol.
