AFL Round 11: cloudburst by Haiku Bob





Queen’s Birthday

the number one pick rubs shoulders

with the best






this day

looks no different

yet eight unanswered goals






dark clouds

and Presti

shut out any light






cloudburst –

goal sharks spill over themselves

for crumbs






rain comes down hard

no one sees him

until he takes the grab







of cold rain

swirling Neon






wind tossed rain –

the two rucks late in the last

bend and sway
