Round 19 – Haiku Bob: night squall


no goals
the pressure
of the moon




winter night
the sound of an empty
forward line




night squall
beyond it the cry
of a magpie




8 goals down
the creep
of my other life




our silence
a goal




rotting leaves
a goal in the last quarter
none of us cheer




after the loss
wondering if I could marry
this girl on the train
