[Note: this contest has officially ended. See results at the bottom of this post.]
Horror poet Stephanie Wytovich (author of Hysteria and Mourning Jewelry) and I will be live-tweeting horror haiku intermittently on twitter.com throughout Halloween night, from 7pm-11pm eastern. Anyone who retweets one of our poems tagged with #Haikuween (or who posts their own bloody #Haikuween tagged as such) will be entered into a random draw to win the infamous “Poedown” limited lettered CD (in a double-live case, coupled with the Arnzensongs CD).
This is a very rare treasure, as only selected backers of the Fridge of the Damned kickstarter campaign in 2013 have one of only 26 copies made. This is probably your only chance to nab one!
Here’s what our #haikuween looks like:

UPDATE: The contest has ended. A LOT of great poems were produced. Search twitter for hashtag #haikuween (or you can see mine in the “horror poem” section of The Nest). Be sure to check out Stephanie Wytovich’s poetry on twitter too — together we wrote haiku for four hours on Halloween night!
The winner of the contest was Eric Stoveken, who played along by posting the following horror poem:
Children's icy hands Reach, I think, for the candy Grab my wrist. I'm wrong #haikuween
