Twitter Haiku

Hello. My name is Ryan Mecum. I wrote a book about a zombie who writes haiku called Zombie Haiku. I also wrote a book about a vampire who writes haiku called Vampire Haiku. It won’t come out until August 2009, but because I wrote it I read it already, and I think it turned out pretty good. It’s a fun story, and I’m excited for people other than myself to read it.

In the meantime, if you would like Read more of this blog post »

If Famous Poets Wrote Zombie Haiku (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 11, 2009 09:43AM
Description: Here are some short poems I wrote in the voice of some of my favorite poets, as if they were writing a zombie poem in 5,7,5 syllable structure.
“Blood is really warm,
it's like drinking hot chocolate
but with more screaming.”
Ryan Mecum, Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains

“If the dawn should break
and take away this sunrise,
I hope I break, too.”
Ryan Mecum, Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains

“If this were real life,
Ed would have looked at her neck-
bite, dead, burp, credits.”
Ryan Mecum, Vampire Haiku

“If the sky falls they shall have clouds for supper.”
Charles Simic, The World Doesn't End: Prose Poems

“The problem with being nuts, she thought, is that you don't always feel as if you're nuts. Sometimes, in fact, you feel perfectly sane, and there just happens to be a trailer-shaped dragon crouching in the lot next door.”
Christopher Moore

“Vade Mecum

I want the scissors to be sharp
and the table perfectly level
when you cut me out of my life
and paste me in that book you always carry.”
Billy Collins, Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems

is just sitting in her car
eating spaghetti.”
