The Madman would only talk to me when we were out of earshot of others. The more the Madman talked the more bizarre he got. He says that I have seen ghosts in Bisbee. How does he know what I have seen?
He said that the ghosts of Bisbee were Civil War vintage. They were mostly ghosts with amputations that were the result of Civil War injuries.*
Come to think of it, maybe I have seen a ghost or two. Maybe I was seeing a ghost at that moment. Every time that I have seen him, he seems to just magically appear from near the Grand Saloon. I don’t wish to talk with him again.
By now we were under a green ATM machine. His skin was sweating, giving him a palish green, beady appearance.
As I left, he reached in his pocket, and pulled out a flask. He sprinkled the contents on me. Am I now a Madman too?
* Fact check: Bisbee was founded in 1888 – a little too late for the Civil War.
