Haiku Bob – Round 8 – blindsided


the moon sits

on top of the grandstand –

weight of the defeat






after the game

the train fills with laughter

and silence





bare trees

all day sensing

this defeat





merging clouds

a kick into the forward line

cut off





goalless quarter –

the yellow footy lost

in the sunset






by the onset of floodlights

two quick goals





through another hole

in the back six

the moon
