I’d been expecting the zombies all my life.  They used to be called Communists.  Before that Nazis.  Then we called them Squares. And after that Conservatives.  Church goers were zombies for a while.  Anyone who didn’t go to university and become an intellectual was obviously a zombie.  I just got around to knowing they were corporations later in life.  I figured they were police and jailers and politicians and judges.  Anyone other than what my group thought was okay had to be a  zombie.

There were always us and them.  Then it was just me and them.  Then I wondered if I was a zombie.  We become what we fear. I was mighty afraid of zombies.  So how come I wasn’t well.  Everyone around me was walking funny. They weren’t biting people but they were eating flesh in church and worshiping the killers in the wars.  Everyone was selling guns and drugs.  

I was ready for the zombies.  I wasn’t ready for my being one.
