AFL Round 16 – Haiku Bob – from somewhere a cloud

stars appearing
our game plan in a million
pieces

 

gazing
at the centre half forward
no longer there

 

 

sharp wind
Hodge’s torpedo
pierces the night

 

swirling breeze
whichever way we want to go
we can’t

 

cloudless night
from somewhere a cloud
of hawks

 

in the clear
Toovey kicks it out of bounds
just like that

 

 

hope gone
our full-forward
comes to life

 

 

no way back
nothing to do but take in
Buddy

 

 

leaving early
I’m not in the mood for it
either
