Haiku Bob: From the outer

autumn remains –

a few minutes left

of the low scoring game


away game

the ball not going

to the right spots


one goal down in the rain sinking lower into the sofa


scores level vapor rises from the outer


branches snap off another knee


thin rain

hopes of winning

appear fainter


glowing softly

in the floodlights

Didak’s goal
