: a will-less and speechless human (as in voodoo belief and in fictional stories) held to have died and been supernaturally reanimated
: the supernatural power that according to voodoo belief may enter into and reanimate a dead body
: a person held to resemble the so-called walking dead;
: a person markedly strange in appearance or behavior
: a mixed drink made of several kinds of rum, liqueur, and fruit juice
… a morning rush of zombielike office workers, all starved for caffeine and clamoring for cappuccino.
This is a poetry eerily populated with ghosts and mummies and zomboid creatures who go on living though dead from love.
