AFL Round 4 – Richmond v Collingwood (Haiku Bob): shine of the dying sun


they fall and fall
at the feet of Cloke
autumn leaves



the trees and the coach
turning red



autumn colour
the tattooed rover
adds his



between holding on and dropping
umpire says play-on


a goal
no one could miss
is missed



deep in the pocket
Cloke in the shine
of the dying sun



crisp autumn air
difference between the teams
