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





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
