AFL Round 7 – Fremantle v Collingwood (Haiku Bob): nowhere to go

 

twilight game
our mid-season slump begins
early

 

 

the sun makes its exit seven goals down

 

 

Dockers surge
the sky turns purple
behind the scoreboard

 

 

the fallen sun
and now Pendlebury
with nowhere to go

 

 

rising moon –
the gaping hole
in the back half

 

 

a log spits and flares Heater lashes out

 

 

autumn stillness
the speedster
lies motionless

    For many years June was ordinary for Collingwood! Love the atmospheric “rising moon.”
