Haiku Bob: Community Cup — shifty winds

pre-match
the dressing room fills
with smoke

 

 

Community Cup –
decked out in team colours
the family dog

 

 

in the clinches
beer guts hold
right of way

 

 

burly rover streams forward
way up ahead
his former self

 

 

rain comes
the crowd on the hill
unmoved

 

 

half-time –
hamstring on ice the Rockdog’s frayed
guitar strings

 

 

wind-stripped trees
the ground covered
in streakers

 

 

shifty winds
the game decided
by a ring-in

 

 

dying sun
Dermie’s bleached hair
holds the light
