Yay!
Also: Australian online poetry journal Cordite recently devoted an issue to zombie-themed poetry.

Roz is one of the most charming and unique people it's ever been my pleasure to meet.

A quick search turns up plenty of hits for "zombie poetry", but my favorite has to be the zombie magnet poetry kit. Great for survivors on the go, and you can even use them to beautify your shotgun.

Shall I compare thee to a rotting corpse?
Thou art more hungry and more relentless:
I hear feet creaking 'long the floorboard warps.
That smell! Oh, how I wish that you were scentless!
Thy ranks are rank, thy zombie tasks are thankless
To search for brains not thy own to eat.
Who dares to punish you? Thy buns are spankless
As thee in petty pace pursues raw meat.
Now that the Sheol's depths below hath o'erflown
That tis thy cue to traipse this lowly sphere.
At first I thought my fear was o'erblown -
Yet what be this bite upon my shoulder here?
It starts to fester, soon I'll join you, I'm
About to do the zombie shuffle double time.

I wrote this sonnet quickly on the fly.

Which is four years out of date and doesn't include any of her recent work such as Superheroes! or her forthcoming books on Nip/Tuck and fantasy film. Why do writers let this happen?

I'm sorry. It's my site, and it's my fault.

I haven't been able to spend the time updating it. But I'll talk to Roz and see what I can do.

Meanwhile, Roz is ridiculously awesome, and has the best stories.
