The latest issue of The Goreletter (Vol. 7.01: “Cibophobia”) included a special subscribers-only contest that involved writing a haiku summary of one of my books and posting it to LibraryThing’s #bookhaiku page. Here are the winning entries (surprise: I’ve added a bonus for 4th place!).
These fine folks are all each receiving a signed copy of Many Genres, One Craft, an uncased copy of the film based on my short-shorts, Exquisite Corpse, on DVD, and a special signed CD-R single of “The Bleu Man Group” (featuring both live and studio versions), excerpted from the ArnzenSongs CD (currently in production as part of a 26-copy lettered series of double-live recordings for kickstarter backers of The Fridge of the Damned…extra cds will be available for sale from this site in the near future, if you missed your chance!). They also all received a free limited edition broadside (fancy single poem on fancy paper).
psychopath of art:
i color my brain in ink —
your death comes to me
— Bill Bush
nothing is as it appears —
read between the lines
— Beth Kegelmeyer
Thanks to these fine folks for crafting such intriguing haiku. I love every syllable.
