Round 19 – Collingwood v Carlton: Haiku Bob – the other half

 

thick cloud cover ~

heads in the crowd start dropping

to phones

 

 

 

half-empty stadium ~

the other half

found something better to do

 

 

 

turnover ~

another little death

in the forward line

 

 

 

dull game ~

commentators dissect

the rookie’s genes

 

 

 

Swan on the run ~

seagulls give chase to the one

that has found something

 

 

 

winter haze ~

forwards take the edge off

a promising move

 

 

 

nearing spring ~

our defence

about to crack
