Cadaver Arcade

August 18, 2008


I walked into a pinball hall.

Pinball Wizards crouched by each machine.

Every fixture was hollowed out, gutted, and filled with fresh cadavers half-submerged in baths of formaldehyde.

Press “tilt” and work the flippers, their arms and legs flail, seemingly of their own volition.

And, oh god…

The smell.
