AFL Round 21 – Hawthorn v Collingwood (Haiku Bob): all the way back

 

shadows of September –
we do everything
but win

 

 

Spring
around the corner
Buddy’s curl

 

 

getting a run-on
the moon comes out
from the clouds

 

 

warmer nights
the ball slides off
Goldy’s boot

 

 

end of Winter –
we go all the way back
to the goal square

 

 

Rioli breaks clear –
the movement
in the forward line

 

 

beaten again –
my daughter
saves the day
