charioteer: a story circle

charioteer: a story circle

amber plating on the side of a gold-ringed chariot
squeaky axle gleaming
a charioteer in agony and brass plate, on foot to the armoury
an absent attendant
rummaging, the charioteer gets the grease
a gauntleted hand on his shoulder; he’s spun
sent back to the start with the grease
and a written citation
