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


shadows of September –
we do everything
but win



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
