“Two lobes in the skull.
I eat the bloodier one –
not much difference.” – Robert Frost
Zombies, like many other facets of human existence, have been the muse of a great many authors. From novelists to comic writers, the undead have left their indellible mark on society forever. Not to be left out, the Asian poem, the haiku, has not been left out of the zombie’s cold embrace. Zombie Haiku is the poetry book for the zombie fanatic.
Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry For Your…Brains is a book written by Ryan Mecum where he explores the poetic depths of the zombie influence. He has taken haiku to new heights with this book. He even offers his take on haikus that famous authors may have written had they written haikus about zombies.
It’s a ton of fun to read. It’s even poetry so you can dismiss any gawkers judging you for reading a book about zombies. Just look at them and say “HEY! It’s poetry! Get some culture, you clods!” You can pick the book up on Amazon if you haven’t already. I am a bit late to the game with this, it was released in 2008. However, a new volume was released just last year with Dawn of Zombie Haiku, which is more short poem goodness.
