Vengeful Ghosts

FOUND OBJECT. Near the Nishiogi Branch Library, next to a bridge that crosses the Zenpukuji River, is a small vacant lot still thick with trees and bushes.  Trash is sometimes dumped here, an old futon or a plastic bag full of wrappings and garbage from a take-out convenience store lunch.  It is the home of several stray cats, too, and when I pass by I often see empty cat food tins, indicating that someone in the neighborhood is providing them with meals.

At the edge of the lot I recently noticed this small altar.

The sign warns that “…the revengeful ghosts of abandoned cats will visit those who have abandoned them without fail.” While I stood at the side of the road copying these words into my notebook, my legs began to itch.  I was attacked by fleas.
