"Zombies In the Fields"

29 November 2010



zombies in the fields lifting each cauliflower decoy brains
(Scott Thouard)
footprints smell of fungus and new rain
(grant b)
in lust for the drummer this silent heart
(Lorin)
out in the dark behind the disco – waiting
(Genevieve Osborne)
new moon all that exposed flesh shivers my skin
(Graham Nunn)
the high-pitch screeches swallowed by fog
(Barbara A Taylor)
Salome's dragon coughs a wake in progress
(Liam)
prizes at Bar Etiquette for the best dressed dead
(Lorin)
stop! on the tailor's needle bits of blood
(Vasile Moldovan)
his mouth drawn shut a head-shrinker's trophy
(grant b)
dreaming of pearls the old actress leaves her teeth out
(Graham Nunn)
signing autographs sideshow seats glow orange
(David Prater)
Armageddon rules against the whistle blower a stiff wind
(Betty Ann Galloway)
midnight, the train departs for death camps
(Barbara A Taylor)
all by itself a hand creeps through the moonlight
(Ashley Capes)
whose coat of arms on this signet ring?
(Lorin)
nicotine sky dulling the smell of bodies
(Graham Nunn)
suffocated by datura's tubular bells
(Barbara A Taylor)
here in the garden worms outnumber the dead
(Graham Nunn)
reincarnations wriggling to escape
(Barbara A Taylor)
Cowards! I cannot believe they're gone
(Betty Ann Galloway)
‘scuse me, friend this spot taken?
(Liam)
our breathing stilled a city crumbles beyond the north window
(Wilie)
cutting deeper a blade fashions sorrow
(Liam)
iron coloured smoke slicing through the fallen trees never stops rising
(grant)
foraging wild pigs squeal on their backs
(Barbara A Taylor)
mudslinging zombie brides dirty dancing
(Betty Ann Galloway)
sweet words below the hedge the earth quakes
(Claire)
maybe it’s the tides pulling our bodies back up pulp gleams in moonlight
(grant)
spindle-limbs erected all along the shore
(Jasmina)
behind closed doors bony fingers are spinning thread for shrouds
(Genevieve Osborne)
esprit de corps! mummies scatter
(Liam)
swinging a baseball bat I hear that satisfying crunch
(Ashley Capes)
fresh mounds pop up in the soupy mist
(Jasmina)
bearded iris holds and shuffles the deck
(Liam)
each nodding head learning to crawl again
(grant)
