    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.
