THE END by Eileen Neary
March 22, 2010  Poetry   Tags:   

Broken urban desert, stale, parched
Dusted and frosted with collapsing automobiles
Skeletal juices crunch and ooze underfoot
All is dead
And as I stumble past a window I see my blackened eyes
Dry lips, death-blown hair, empty gaze
And with each step another ravaged wound
My heart begins to sputter
And when my left arm goes I don’t feel a thing
because the horde has swallowed me
New York City couldn’t save me


  1. Ooo! I’m not usually much of a fan of poetry, genre or not.

    This one is pretty good, though. Leaves ya wondering:

    Is the speaker a Zombie become just one of millions, or that last victim of the Horde?

    Either way, it’s an eerie feeling at the end.
