Haiku Bob – Round 11 – small fragments

 

 

 

clock ticks down

only Pendlebury

with time to spare

 

 

 

 

 

 

injuries pile up

we win the game

in small fragments

 

 

 

 

 

just

as I start complaining

a goal

 

 

 

 

 

no free-kick –

I storm out

of the living room

 

 

 

 

 

close finish –

an excuse

for another drink

 

 

 

 

 

last rays –

we start the last quarter

with a flicker of hope

 

 

 

 

 

winning goal

I see myself

in the crowd
