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?
