Zombie (Three Ways)

Today I have three pieces related to the theme of Zombie.


George Pfau started Zombiescapes a few  years ago.  It’s a collection of abstract paintings of scenes from famous zombie films or television programs.  It’s kind of like Monet doing George Romero’s storyboards.  Here’s an example, with the actual move scene for comparison.

Dawn of the Dead (1978)

This one is my zombie creation.

Zombie

The mindless corpse shuffled along

A gasping guttural growl its only song

Clothing bloodstained, tattered, and worn

Rotting pus filled flesh is torn

Eyes a glassy milk white

Exposed jaw open, ready to bite

Dragging one hobbled leg behind

Fresh brains are what it needs to find


Finally here is Zombie by the Cranberries.  This is a different take on the zombie theme.  It was inspired by the IRA bombing in Warrington, Cheshire in 1993, where two innocent children were killed.

  1. I was SO glad to see a post from you today. 😀
    I have never been a big fan of zombies, but I LOVE that picture. And always, your words are moving, albeit disgusting and disturbing. I find anytime you can elicit emotions through writing, it’s a great thing. Love the song choice too. Again, happy to read you today. 🌻

    1. Thank you! Your comments always make me smile. I’ve been dealing with some personal stuff lately, so my time for reading and writing has been limited. That may continue for a while, but I’ll always be back eventually.
