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?
Is a ballet dance
Sir Paul’s idea of revenge
on one legged exes?
Thanks to everyone for entering!
