Almanac (Footy) Poetry: The karma of gathering

We introduce Simon de Frankston, who had to be coaxed into publishing – and then he asked if we paid a fee. The exchange is recounted in the introduction to this, the only footy poem he’s ever written, which enters haiku territory in its final lines. (There will be more poetry from him, no doubt.) Worth a read for the observations of coaches alone. [Welcome SdeR – we’ve been waiting a long time.]
