No.5 Jarvey






She wore blinkers, saw only the future.

He warned her of the peril, the traffic.

I will provide, he said.  A warm bed, enough to eat and drink, .

Ever promising the road ahead, lumps of sugar at the end. Chafing shafts and steel bit unheeded.

There were triumphs, shouts about her ears. Always a challenge, another hill to climb. No time  to pause.

Nights of dreamless sleep.

The day arrived. He led her to a lunar landscape.

Old soldiers never die, he said, and removed her blinkers.

She turned and saw the ruin of her life.
