Haiku Bob – Round 4: belly flops and bintangs

 

Easter Sunday –
our full-forward continues
to be passed over
 
 
 
 
 
a set shot
from directly in front –
my Bintang sweats
 
 
 
 
 
another turnover –
last night’s Nasi Goreng
fighting back
 
 
 
 
 
chain of fumbled passes –
a long, lunging run
to the toilet
 
 
 
 
 
watching Collingwood –
my sunburnt face camouflages
embarrassment
 
 
 
 
 
in Bali
everything takes longer –
we finally kick a goal
 
 
 
 
Magpies go down –
a frangipani leaf belly flops
into the pool

    If only the Pies
    could play with some of the flair
    that flows from your pen
