Round 1 – Haiku Bob: outgoing sky



the stars appear
one at a time



outgoing sky



no sound at the ‘G
except stunned silence
stretcher called



half-time deficit
my worries reach the bar
before me



sweaty moon
no one can land a finger
on Pendlebury



still finishing my sentences Daicos



morning after
the light still on
