Round 9 – Haiku Bob: lopsided moon

 

first bounce—
the heads of all
the beers

 

 

lopsided moon—
whatever we try ends in a goal
to them

 

 

one-way traffic
Bontempelli handballs
in the blink

 

 

under the roof
sometimes I forget
it’s a football match

 

 

meeting old friends
the team’s latest defeat
the least of our worries

 

 

night falls—
vanishing with the light
magpie song

 

 

home after a loss—
everything smells
of dog
