December

By Michellee

It was decided.
They’ll wait to get another bike.
Focus on the deployment.

But the phone rang
on the eve of Christmas Eve.
An IED.

His life isn’t gone,

but his legs are.

Replace the fantasy of a Harley
with a wheelchair lift.

Re-enlisting

lead to this.

One month later the phone
rang again. One of his men
was killed.
One that helped save him.

All he has ever known
is taking pieces of his life
away.
