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.
