Haiku Bob: Community Cup — shifty winds

the dressing room fills
with smoke



Community Cup –
decked out in team colours
the family dog



in the clinches
beer guts hold
right of way



burly rover streams forward
way up ahead
his former self



rain comes
the crowd on the hill



half-time –
hamstring on ice the Rockdog’s frayed
guitar strings



wind-stripped trees
the ground covered
in streakers



shifty winds
the game decided
by a ring-in



dying sun
Dermie’s bleached hair
holds the light
