Round 21 – Melbourne v Collingwood: Haiku Bob – still some dreamers




winter drizzle

starved forwards skirmish

for crumbs






cold winter light

every shot for goal







even though

I’ve heard it before

the first goal






still single

this week I fall in love

with Brodie Mihocek






winter rain

I wipe my hands

after Billy drops the mark






swaying branches

every now and then

a pass connects






scattered crowd

still some dreamers

among us
