Zombie Apocalypse

by Shawn Allen

Look around you.
We are living the zombie apocalypse.
Dying flesh hanging on souls,
Dead ideas walking the Earth.
Dead eyes watching reality
like a tv show.
Deaf ears tuned away from truth,
and mouths full of ashes.
Yet, look to these others casting their nets;
not to catch the undead,
to catch themselves and each other.
Creating sanctuaries of love
and acting as gentle midwives
to a new power,
a new reality,
a new Earth.
Look with new eyes.
This is the zombie’s apocalypse!
We are souls living in flesh,
We are thoughts making reality,
We are voices singing the truth,
We are . . .
