2013 Haiku Contest Winners
We gave you a month, Albuquerque, and you gave us the world broken into finely honed syllabic orders of expression. Egad! Hundreds of entries poured in for Alibi’s 21st annual Haiku Contest. To claim that choosing the best nine haiku from among so very many clever, snarky, wise and emotive possibilities was difficult would be an understatement of the most scurrilous variety. Suffice it to say that we loved many more than we could give prizes to—but we do invite you, our discerning readers, to examine the full roster of participants, and tell us why we chose rightly or wrongly.
A million and six thanks to this year’s sponsors, whose local goodies are sure to warm the cockles of our winners’ hearts: The Grove Cafe & Market (600 Central SE, 248-9800), Downtown Books (109 Eighth Street SW, 243-4492), The Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE, 255-1848), Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW, 344-8139) and The Chocolate Dude (3339 Central NE, 639-5502). Winners in each category can pick up their prize packs at the Alibi offices at 413 Central NW from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
