Friday Flash 55 ~ The Nightly News Zombie

The Nightly News Zombie

The newslady’s tucked her face again,
Done some debriding and chemical peel
Slipped a stitch into her eye-holes,
Shot some more autologen into
Her already full pouting lips,
Ruffled up her hair of unknown color
In another new way.

I’ve watched every night
For over ten years.
She never gets older,
She just gets

Posted for Friday Flash 55 at G-man's.

I have a lot more of this poem, but it's going to have to be put on the slab in my moldering basement laboratory for more experimentation before I resurrect it to hideous Undead life. Til then, here's 55 words of it.

Monkey Man points out there's a Blogger Zombie Walk happening today on the intertubes. For additional zombie fare, be sure to check out Ghost Hunting Theories.
