We had a great response to our Hallowtweet Poety Contest (just made that name up).  I think it was exactly fifty entries.  Which makes this next part hard, but...

The winner of the 2012 Hallowtweet Poetry Contest is...

Zack Rock (@zackrock)

Frankenstein dons Calvin Klein/Dracula wears Crocs/Wolfman shaves & behaves/Bigfoot's in big socks/Tonite it's thus: we're them, they're us.

Isn't that nice?

Zack, if indeed that is his real name, will receive an original drawing by me, suitable for framing, if you think framing something like that is suitable.

We also have five runners up, in no particular order:

Brian Rafter (@WerewolfBathtub)

2 spatulas, a wooden spoon/The choices make him wince./The Slasher's stuck; the dishwasher/Is locked on normal rinse.
Talky Tina Kugler (@tinatheatre)
No child fears the Jubbalo/Sharp horns on top and claws below/No child fears his eyes a-glitter/His favorite food is babysitter.
Amanda C. Davis (@davisac1)
Ghoulsie dies and ghostsie dies and little vampsy dorgans. (A wolfully dorgans too, wouldn't you?)
Carter Higgins (@CarterHiggins)
Sugar coated canines and rotting roots in heaps. On Hallow's Eve, Tooth Fairy shakes her piggy bank and weeps.
Julie Falatko (@JulieFalatko)
The wind is howling/ The candlelight flickers/ To the wee goblins I say:/ Keep your hands off my Snickers.
Thanks again to everyone–this was even more fun than I'd expected.  Winners should get in touch via the email in my blog profile.
