Haiku Books: Miscellaneous

Zombie Haiku – Syllables: 17; body count: Much, much more.

For those that love both zombies and to count syllables, Zombie Haiku by Ryan Mecum is a treat. Really, a rather brilliant combination of syllables and gore. Jump to the website promoting this book and make sure to watch the video, which seems to riff off of the Jack Kerouac and Zoot Sims collaboration recording of the Beat poet’s American Pops, blending it with today’s zombie culture.

The book is a great tool to help understand that what can be achieved when the seventeen syllable count is the single adherent to the form.
