Picture_2_2The walking dead. Celebrated through the rigid metrical phrasing of haiku. In the voices of several masters of verse. I love every part of this concept.

Dylan Thomas offers practical advice: Do not go gentle / into that zombie-plagued night. / And take the shotgun.

But my favorite is from Walt Whitman: Every skin atom / form’d from this soil, this air, / tastes like chicken meat.
