Some race. Some lurch. Others come crawling, limping, staggering—dragging themselves toward anyone who might still have a pulse. Zombies invade the island of Manhattan, and they're hungry.
The story of the zombie apocalypse is told through the eyes of Dawn, a ten-year-old girl who's been well-schooled in the undead because of her father's love of zombie movies. As the zombies approach, Dawn and her dad realize the time has come to implement their Zombie Escape Plan, so they gather friends and flee to the Statue of Liberty.
Only the plan doesn't go quite as expected. Dawn documents their downfall in her haiku journal, where the limb-snapping, eye-popping, bone-crunching zombies eventually make her one of their own. In gory detail, and sometimes channeling her favorite poets, she describes the gruesome scenes before her—and her own frightening impulses.
Ryan Mecum, the wicked mind behind the original Zombie Haiku, brings you another volume of disturbing poetry from the perspective of the walking dead. It's sure to get your heart racing and your gag reflex working… but hopefully not your mouth salivating.
