AFL Round 15 – Carlton v Collingwood: break in the gloom

 

winter night
an unexpected break
in the gloom

 

 

Friday night football
a seagull gets caught
on camera

 

 

five goals down
in the first
– the cold!

 

 

sunset Blues disappear

 

 

day turns to night
an early injury
changes everything

 

 

the ascent
of the moon
Cloke clunks it

 

 

dew drops
Krakouer mops up
the crumbs

 

 

cold night
Dwyer’s goal
feeds the flames

 

 

after the goal
Blues fans boos fill
my heart
