Preliminary Final: Haiku Bob – losing it


catching the train

past all these churches

to the MCG





steady drizzle


we fall apart





three quarter-time huddle

even the clouds

have clouds





last quarter comeback

the crowd

losing it





final siren

I cradle my daughter –

waning crescent moon






after the defeat

my wet clothes heavy

with the defeat






season over

my mind turns

to the next life
