Haiku Bob – Round 3 – a new side

first win of the year
my daughter sees a new side
of her dad

 

 

 

crashing
our conversation
goal from the boundary

 

 

 

nine unanswered goals
more brilliant tonight
the stars

 

 

 

big half-time lead
some knowing looks
at the urinal

 

 

 

distant jet
the dashing defender
takes off

 

 

 

final siren
time to go home
and watch the replay!

 

 

 

beating Carlton
the fragrant aftertaste
of a single malt
