Meet Your Blarch Badness Contenders: Hillku


I think I speak for most of us here at Seattle Metblogs when I say that Hillku is one of our favorites. Shrouded in mystery, they appeared out of the blue and charmed us with their haiku poetry about Capitol Hill. Below is a Q&A I did via email with City and Final, the two gracious purveyors of Hillku.

(Note: Hillku is facing a tough Round 2 charm-off with Kirida; voting is still open [m-b].)

who are you really?
the mystery confounds me.
at least: girl or guy?

Straight Obama girl,
Homo Hills boy. Politics
Won’t divide us, though.

we love your haiku
but want to know why you chose
it to blog the hill

Attention span short.
Good to limit the amount –
Ooo, shiny objects.

not to be rude but
why don’t you like the tourney?
are you a hippy?

CapHill named us top.
We made our friends vote so much
They won’t talk to us…

plans: do you want to
expand to other ‘hoods like
j and k of c. hill ‘blog?

Wallingku does not
Have the same ring as Hillku.
Nor: Bellku, U-ku.

do you still count on
your fingers the number of
syllables? i do.

One, two, three, four, five.
Yes, absofuckinlutely.
Sometimes toes as well.

finally (at last!)
what’s your favorite haiku
over the past year?

City and Final
Love the Why You tagged Hillkus.
Why you make us pick?

Shameless plug for Ku:
