Down to the Wire, footy haiku by Rob Scott


Categories: ,


“Rob Scott is an Australian haiku poet with an international reputation which will only be enhanced by the publication of this exciting new book about the game he clearly loves. Scott has done for Australian Rules football what Cor van den Heuvel did for American baseball. They both have the knack of capturing the essential moments of a game with a discerning eye and deft turn of phrase.” — Myron Lysenko

     footy season begins
     all the teams freshly

          the game goes
          down to the wire —
          my thinning hair

               another defeat —
               that place in my knee
               where it hurts
