the splintered pack

12 goals clear
Krakouer kicks the last
on impulse



spring petals —
Cloke plucks one
close to home



Sandilands jumps —
the splintered pack releases
the goal sneak



the many paths life takes us peppering the goals



Swan sets off everyone left behind



winter’s end —
the slow turn
of the ruckman



talk of returning home —
a new twist
in Leon’s tale?
