Left brain and right brain / go their separate ways, when sucked / through the eye sockets. #zombiehaiku Goodnight and Happy Halloween!
One more #zombiehaiku and then I’m off…
An undead gourmet / fashions the brains on their stems / into lollipops. #zombiehaiku
Milk means nothing now / to infants who crawl, undead — / seeking brain puree. #zombiehaiku
Bloated zombie ticks. / Their heads get under your skin. / Shoot them anyway! #zombiehaiku
No history here. / All the dead alive at once — / eating memories. #zombiehaiku
They do not like brains. / They just want to eat something. / That understands them. #zombiehaiku
Happy Halloween @MichaelBoatman_ ! We watched your “Soul Mates” episode of Criminal Minds tonight on DVR. Good scary stuff.
How do they know that / comatose brains taste the best? / Something awakens. #zombiehaiku
Crazy cat lady / isn’t sure which of her hoard / is dead or alive.
Intestinal tract / knots around his mandible. / He tugs — both untie. #zombiehaiku
The very last brain / was swallowed without fanfare — / thus, terror ended. #zombiehaiku
KaseyLansdale Where there is no imagination there is no horror. ~Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

The undead toddler / chews on a Kewpie doll’s head / like she’s still teething. #zombiehaiku
Awesomesaucem @poxypigtails! A Xmas halloween haiku is a clever idea!
The crippled undead / are the saddest ones to shoot — / no misery left. #zombiehaiku
@DTBerkowitz Keep ‘em coming
Camp near the vultures. / They cry and swoop at dead meat: / a zombie alarm. #zombiehaiku
It’s zombie mother / who attacks the nice lady / in the shower stall. #zombiehaiku
Wait by the gravestones — / easier to pick them off / when their heads surface. #zombiehaiku
Aim for the head, but / try not to look in their eyes — / might still be human. #zombiehaiku
Deep in the ocean / blue whales groan for brain tissue — / opera of the dead. #zombiehaiku
@snarkdogg You have my permission to use that haiku as an epigraph if you’d like the whole thing. Congrats on the anthology work!
THANKS @snarkdogg It’s the zombie equivalent of “flowers in her hair” I believe.
eyes transfixed on me / grim features so determined — / spiders in his beard #ZombieHaiku
Welcome back Michael Laimo @MLAIMO
In the library / even the Survival Guide / is blood-stained, unread. #zombiehaiku
it’s not ironic / when the undead bangs your head / against the headboard #zombiehaiku
head soft as grapefruit — / a tiny hand clutches out / between the crib rails #zombiehaiku
I deploy decoys / and take aim when they choke on / the taxidermy. #zombiehaiku
Heidi Klum wins all Halloween costume contests for 2011. Don’t even bother having one: splashnewsonline.com/2011-10-31/hei…
The stiffness of death / crackles worst in the jawline / — so close to deaf ears. #zombiehaiku
trashcans at the curb / the lids like dining tray domes — / mother’s in the bags #zombiehaiku
I’ll be posting #zombiehaiku all day as a personal challenge. When I’m not otherwise making sacrifices to the Many Tentacled Pan Goat God.
First “Zombie Steve Jobs” to knock on my door today gets an apple…with razor blades in it.
