AFLW Round 4 – Haiku Bob: blunt sounds

 

 

 

watching girls

watching women

hunt the Sherrin

 

 

 

roof closed

the blunt sounds

of footy

 

 

 

north wind

we’re playing well, really well

but losing

 

 

 

sunset’s changing hues

the star returns with her nose

bandaged up

 

 

 

moth dust

our team looked better

on paper

 

 

 

the warmth

of the night gone

5 goals down

 

 

 

we go down fighting

one side of my daughter’s face

undimmed
