Ryan Mecum has written a marvelous new collection of Haiku poetry called Zombie Haiku. He has also produced an interesting and original zombie-themed YouTube video to plug it. Of both of these things, I must strongly approve!
The poetry in Zombie Haiku is not just a bunch of poems about zombies (though there would, of course, be nothing wrong with that). Rather, the poems form a narrative told from the point of view of a rampaging zombie. Tremendous! However, this is not to say that the poems don’t stand on their own. Consider the elegant simplicity of this excerpt from Mecum’s work:
You’d think I’d get full
eating so many people,
but really, I don’t.
If this sort of verse tickles your fancy (as, certainly, it does mine), then Zombie Haiku is totally worth your checking out. Mecum has already appeared at ComiCon, and I predict big things for him in the future. You can click here and here for more information about Mecum and Zombie Haiku.
