Haiku Bob – Preliminary Final: cupped in prayer

 

first bounce
unwittingly my hands cupped
in prayer

 

distant horizon
the crowd on the edge
of their seats

 

another beer
so intoxicating
all these goals

 

a Texan
takes a speccy at the ‘G –
everyone has a story

 

magpie season –
the unrelenting singing
of magpies

 

mid-life crisis
a big win over our rivals
buries everything

 

hours after the win
the soft beat of my pulse
against the pillow
