Well, the clock struck one. We have Sharon Bridgforth Ticket Winners (and a consolation prize winner)!

Our two first place winners, who will receive tickets to tonight's performance of Bridgforth's delta dandi and their winning haiku entries are as follows:

Bring forth our Bridgforth,
unleash the phenomenal.
Guts. Grace. Damn dandi!

                  – Lois Rodriguez


Sharon has no hair.
Bald is now quite beautiful.
Where are my scissors?

                  – Sherie Railsback

WHOOT! Congratulations, winners! Enjoy the show!

And hey, what is a contest without a consolation prize? Out of the wash of entries, I called this particular haikuer to ask for publishing rights. She will receive a special Gay Place consolation prize in the mail!

vegan as i am
once or thrice i ate fried chick
it was worth the kill.

                  – Jaclyn Pryor

Thanks, everybody for entering!
