Ghost Judo

Spectral Martial Artists

The tactic of using the opponent’s weight against them is problematic.

Lechugan Valkerie

A shimmering image of fire and fear, seen through half-open eyes.

Immolator of the lightly dozing.

But Hey, Back on the Right Side of the Dirt!

I'm myself, just a happy cadaverous kind of me

Ever been stuck head first into a deep, narrow hole, covered with dirt and brought back to life days later by a Vodou priest to be his personal enemy eater?

Yeah, one of those kind of weeks.

Frog + Metastag = TLA

Happy frog stares lovingly, longingly at metastag

“There’s no way! it’ll never work!”

If Arthur had a fly for every time he heard this he’d never need to buy lunch again.

But here they were, happy as clams, nearly 20 years into it.

It just goes to show you kids, follow your heart, be persistent and good things can happen.

Happy Specter has Something for Everyone

Happy Specter floats around all of us

Flitting from flickery-dim hospital morgues (“Hi there night-shift intern!”) to the unkempt bedrooms of Wyoming children (“Howdy young mortal!”), Specter Sam took great pride in treating everyone like the first, last and only person he would ever try to scare to death.

Pyrrhia Appears

Pyrrhia is beautiful but fleeting

The first time I saw her I was about 10, after trying to leap down all the basement stairs.

I would have cleared them if the slope of the ceiling were not parallel to the slope
of the stairs. My forehead struck the ceiling as everything else continued forward and up.
I fell back to the cement and metal-edged stairs, striking the back of my head
to summon her inky spreading beauty.

"Too much arc," she whispered.

"Try again."

Turkey Creek Reparations

A strange vision on the dry bed of Turkey Creek

My Aunt Betsy would sneak out regularly when she was a child in Gardner, Colorado.

Once, on a clear, bright-moon night she was out looking for cactus mice to play with.
She was poking through a cluster of yucca when she heard a drift of soft, flat babbling sounds.

Coyotes? She walked quietly across the sand toward a clump of creosote to peek down into the dry creek bed.

It wasn't coyotes.

Osiris and Young Brosirus

Superheroes defer to the Ouija board

Strengths: Great at catching robbers by showing up at exactly the right moment.
Weaknesses: Easily lured into long conversations about reincarnation,
the 4th dimension and other trippy shit.
