Haiku Bob – Round 21 – plus or minus

 

the final margin plus or minus the beer

 

 

 

all on

the young full-forward’s shoulders

the moon

 

 

 

half moon-

one side of the ground

rocking

 

 

 

a goal

that took under 10 seconds

and yet

 

 

 

late winter

in his hands briefly

the ball

 

 

 

final siren –

the night divided

in two

 

 

 

down to the wire

but deep down

we always knew
