FPS: bottom falls off by Haiku Bob

bottom falls off

 

 

 

more than once

this love has pushed me

into misery

 

 

 

 

 

monday night football white collared footy jumpers

 

 

 

 

 

brittle night

the bottom falls off

our game plan

 

 

 

 

 

the moon outside

many of our kicks go

in search of it

 

 

 

 

 

 

if the roof were open

more stars would saunter

through our defence

 

 

 

 

 

 

another winter looms

Rocca’s kicking has long tested

this friendship

 

 

 

 

 

 

flogged again

not-so-old men wax lyrical

bout the good ol’ days
