Toshiaki Kato, Lady Sphinx
I set the table
For the ghosts in my home
And pour the wine
And raise a glass to the guests in my home
"I like her,
She looks evil,
And i want to make her scream my name."
For those who don’t know her, she’s a weeping ghost from Latin America. There are a few versions of her story, but the one I was working from was this one: In order to be with the man she loved, she drowned her children, and when the man ended up betraying her, she drowned herself. However, she couldn’t be at peace, since the gates of heaven wouldn’t open for her until she brought her drowned children to them as well. She’s doomed to wander the world forever, crying out for her lost children. Since she can’t find them, sometimes she’ll take other children (naughty children who play alone after dark), drowning them as she did her own and trying to trick heaven into thinking they are hers…
