AFL Round 12 – Collingwood v Western Bulldogs: cold comfort

 

winter solstice a game of two halves

 

 

icy afternoon
the defensive line
set

 

 

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
