What They Never Tell You About Capes

BELLEVUE, WA - They saw Super Poncho Man at Starbucks. Marshall spilled coffee in shock. The Super Poncho was lovingly hand-crafted in Mexico from two king-size woolen blankets. It was red and gold and black.

Anyone can get a knock-off Super Poncho at the Super Online Store, but they'll know the real Super Poncho Man because he is ginormous. He held two quart-sized soy mocha lattes in one hand and lowered his head to clear the exit.

He's the bouncer at the NeXT church. Marshall's eyes tracked the superhero across the street and into a four-story white cube. He had never seen the inside of any church, but he imagined this one a labyrinth of digital HD cubicle shrines.
