Where Zombies Come From

mole in yard of death
nose boring in the dark
blind slayer of worms
in tombstone park

skull-crusher the spook
dull underside of God
hear mole’s heart beneath
mounds of dank sod

moonlit owls sweep-swoop
over living crosses
steeped in rich blood soaking
into sponge moss

I couldn’t resist joining the Buddha Rocks project, even if my contribution is a little belated. Visit buddharocks.deviantart for a bounteous source of photographic inspiration by Mr Eric Alder. Also check out davefarmersblog for some of his entertaining interpretations of the photos, and, of course,  fillingahole – the originator of the project.

  1. Haunting! Although it’s a bit late for Halloween, it’s never too late to join in the BuddhaRocks Project. I’ll be checking back, Sarah!
