Finals Week 1 – Haiku Bob: skip to the end

 

 

finals time

drawing first blood

biting my fingernails

 

 

 

 

into this grey damp evening comes light early goals

 

 

 

 

half-time

reading my book

wanting to skip to the end

 

 

 

 

September –

swooping magpies startle a cat

and another cat

 

 

 

 

bracing myself

against the cold –

Cats claw back

 

 

 

 

door slam

Pendlebury kicks

the sealer

 

 

 

 

my friend

whose team lost

says he’s reassessing things
