Haiku Bob – AFL Round 18 – the big sticks

murky stars
the air heavy
with Presti’s absence


deep winter
the mating season
for misdirected kicks


moon glint
a daisy among the weeds
of our forward line


night mist
Leon turns


another behind –
a seagull sails between
the big sticks


slow moving clouds the full-back caught napping


the goal
the crowd


where he was
before the fog
