Short story/Flash by Kiini Ibura Salaam
Originally published in, and available free online at, Ideomancer
PodCastle reading by Ann Leckie

A family of skeleton spirits go down to Earth on the Day of the Dead and the one narrating the story makes an important discovery.

Very short, poetic in places, funny, and just plain strange. I enjoyed it, but only when reading it. The PodCastle narration is good, but a piece this short is unforgiving, every word matters, and to get this story, I'd recommend reading it rather than listening.

3 out of 5 skeletons like being covered in marigolds.
