Haiku Bob – Round 20 – lessens the dread




floodlight slides off the felled player’s sweat





dead rubber

all these mistakes

I’ve seen before






of the cellar dwellars

our shadows outrun theirs





a win

over another also-ran

lessens the dread





relationship trouble

a battling win

speaks to me





gnarly trees –

the rugged defender prepares

to enter traffic





10 goals up

against the bottom team

my daughter’s smile
