The Horse


A true fiction short about Will, a young, Polish poet who takes a new job as a care worker for elderly men in London. Under-trained and underpaid, Will speeds from home to home on his bicycle, feeling the enormity of his responsibility as he enters hidden worlds to administer care to a delicate but dynamic assortment of men with complex needs. Will is required to use an app called ‘Coral Care’ on his phone which monitors his efficiency, enforces his schedule, and removes the possibility for genuine emotional connection with his service users. This inevitably leads to stress and erosion of empathy, culminating in a terrifying mistake.
