ZOMBIE

A thick, ashen fog drifts between hazy headstones

Torchlight flashes ghostly shadows

as a muffled knell echoes midnight

 

Creeping carefully, lest an unseen cairn

trips a nervous foot

inching to the heart of the cemetery

 

There

 

Broken ground

Excavated earth

Gaping hole

The stench of Death

 

Proof beyond belief

 

It is alive

It is out here

It is hungry

 

Sibilated shuffling sounds…

Sweat belying a cold beyond reason

A miasmic apparition appears

Arms outstretched

Groping, boned hands

Empty eye sockets peer ravenously

Wormy carcass shuffles forward

I smell the maggoty breath

 

The Living Dead
