Haiku Bob – Round 11 – small fragments




clock ticks down

only Pendlebury

with time to spare







injuries pile up

we win the game

in small fragments







as I start complaining

a goal






no free-kick –

I storm out

of the living room






close finish –

an excuse

for another drink






last rays –

we start the last quarter

with a flicker of hope






winning goal

I see myself

in the crowd
