AFLW Round 2 – Carlton v Collingwood: Haiku Bob – upside down

 

 

 

 

in the outer

a girl does a handstand —

world upside down

 

 

 

 

hot start

in the crowd the scent

of hot pies

 

 

 

 

blowing a gale

a tad too much

in the kick

 

 

 

 

searching for an opening

a fly disappears

into the beer can

 

 

 

 

speccy in the outer two dogs humping

 

 

 

 

scudding clouds

we have their measure

outside

 

 

 

 

that winning feeling

daughter returns

my smile
