AFL Round 12 – Collingwood v Western Bulldogs: cold comfort


winter solstice a game of two halves



icy afternoon
the defensive line



roof closed
inside and outside
magpies calling



winter’s hold Pendlebury wriggles free



cold Saturday
each quarter begins
in great haste



cold comfort
the crowd rides
Cloke’s bump



dreary day
another kick
to no advantage



stoking the fire
Cloke’s fifth closes out
the win
