Vulture’s Vampire Weekend Haiku Contest: We Have a Winner


Big congratulations go out today to commenter samfb, the winner of our Vampire Weekend haiku contest. Samfb will attend an exclusive Vampire Weekend show this Thursday, presented by New York's 101.9 RXP, at the petite Studio at Webster Hall. Impressively, this is samfb’s first and only comment! Here's his winning entry:

Heartbreak, late for class
Sometimes being white is hard
Their songs always help

But since we had so many great submissions, we now turn the spotlight to a few runner-ups. Sadly, we don’t actually have any prizes for them, but their poetry is featured after the jump.

Screaming high school fans
Tix sold out to shows near by
Wife says I'm too old


In thrift-store Lacoste
With Birnbach's tome clutched in hand
I ride the F home.


ezra, i'm hungry
where do you keep your kefir?
