AFL Round 20 – Sydney v Collingwood (Haiku Bob): Finding the thread

 

four goals down
in failing light a ghost
of a chance

 

 

pegging back the lead
the moon’s slow
climb

 

 

Winter night –
so much depends upon
one good handpass

 

 

crossing the border
the sound of magpies
so far from home

 

 

buds on trees –
these rookies
could be anything

 

 

finding the thread –
a chain of handpasses
the length of the ground

 

 

leaving the ground –
a Pendlebury handpass
comes back

    The Pies were scary.

    A definite flag chance.

    That chain of handballs was superb.
