Haiku Bob – Round 4 – Out of Sorts



out of sorts ~

the coach takes aim

at his critics





season already over ~

I tweak

my CV





pre-game huddle ~

the players who look better

than they are





gaping holes

in the middle of the ground

I spit out apple seeds





goal for goal

my hope comes

and goes





outgoing tide ~

the opposition

pulls away





Autumn dusk ~

all the color

behind one of the goals





after the defeat ~

we chat about things

that don’t matter
