Yes. Think of all those greeting cards. Then again, think of all those tombstone inscriptions. Hmm.

I love your deer lady, Jane. She looks like a Hitchcock blonde. "Deer Window"! Anyone?

HWPD!

They do. Or at least poets love zombies, or it's a mutual love-in.

I tried to find something small and funny to post, but instead I found hundreds of poems about zombies (including a book of zombie haiku) and this academic post which makes sense (I think, but I'm still not sure) if you read it 17 times over & have a working knowledge of postmodernist French theorists.

Zombie. Joke. Fail.
