  • A Man Who Had No Eyes By: MacKinlay Kantor
  • Mr. Parsons leaves his hotel, and sees a blind beggar coming down the street. Mr. Parsons thinks about how he is glad to be alive. How he has come far in life, to now being an insurance broker.
  • The man offers to sell Mr. Parsons a cigarette lighter. Mr. Parsons tells the man that he doesn't smoke, but the man insists. Mr. Parsons agrees to buy it as a gift.
  • Mr. Parsons asks the beggar about his blindness. The beggar tell Mr. Parsons that he has lost his sight entirely, for fourteen years. He tells Mr. Parsons that he lost his sight in the Westburry chemical spill. He talks about the 'evil' insurance people, making Mr. Parsons feel guilty.
  • The man goes on to tell Mr. Parsons about how someone else trampled him so that they could get out, and he just laid there, gas pouring out of him.
  • Mr. Parsons tells the beggar that his story is true, but that it was the other way around. When the other man is confused, he says that the beggar (now referring to him as Markwardt) was the one who trampled him.
  • Markwardt recognizes Mr. Parsons, and admits that what he says is true. He then protests (now yelling) that Mr. Parsons still managed to get away, but he ended up blind. Mr. Parsons then reveals that he too is blind.
