Last week, Vulture asked you, our wise and dance-loving readers, to compose Paul McCartney–inspired haikus for a chance to win tickets to Ocean's Kingdom, McCartney's upcoming collaboration with the New York City Ballet. (McCartney wrote the score and libretto; the choreography is by Peter Martins.) As always when prizes and poetry are involved, you came through! Congratulations to commenter shoopdelang, who won with the following entry:

‪With the Beatles gone ‬
‪Black swans are the new blackbirds ‬
‪If Sir Paul says so‬

And honorable mentions go to IBNN:

A high-brow version
of an Inconvenient Truth?
With couture, en pointe?

And  Karlosmil:

Is a ballet dance
Sir Paul's idea of revenge
on one legged exes?

Thanks to everyone for entering!
