AFL Preliminary Final – Sydney v Collingwood: September breeze

preliminary final
every seat taken
by hope


winter has gone
but the cold lingers
in our forward line


creeping shadows
not even Pendlebury
can escape


sun goes down
Jetta steals
the light


dodging, weaving
Harry ducks under
the moon


all night
looking up and seeing
the opportunity
is gone


September breeze
from out of nowhere
four unanswered goals


a cracking goal
the crowd


so final
the final
