already gone

cat wakes up magpies already gone

night mist –
the tagger looks around
for his man

rain and fog –
still no sign
of Cloke

pouring rain
a long stream
of handballs

rain squalls –
players chase the ball
to and fro

Swan streams forward
rain begins
to clear

8 goal quarter –
pre-match coffee

ground dries out the game runs its course

  1. HB – as a Cat supporter of course I found the game disappointing. But it seemed to have a fairly flat atmosphere. The punters expecting more?
