Texas hold ’em

by Ed Higgins

Around the poker table at midnight three zombies and a vampire gather for a game of Texas hold 'em. The vampire's skin is as blue as two-week old cottage cheese. He taps his wooden leg under the green-cloth table. One zombie has her foot in the male zombie's crotch across the table from her. The zombie named Howie has a hand under the table on her knee. The vampire can read minds. He knows the zombies are cheats.
