AFL Round 2 – Collingwood v Geelong: Haiku Bob – Down to the Wire


down to the wire my thinning hair



April moon

through cloud –

a long bomb to nowhere



autumn colour

a goal

from a blue



autumn wind

and Macaffer too

in Johnson’s face



where there’s no-one Elliot marks



autumn wind

all night Harry

twisting, turning



forced to kick

the backman with a wonky boot

scores a goal



one or two green leaves


not dead yet



last minute loss

the long walk

to the station
