Crossflow Winds

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lost, my ball in the crossflow winds.
Collapse the tactics board
now there’s only Route One.
Let’s see where it falls.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hope the van won’t topple outside
old Brentford dock, buffered
by all those tower blocks
we watch from the Chiswick Flyover.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We like to keep it on the floor
but modern pro zone analytics
need long range Met Office support
to tell us how to run, the heat map,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the line of lost intent, tackles
never made, runs of pointlessness,
passing brilliance. A lost game
in crossflow winds over ‘Fly KLM.’

Recalls- among other things- a windy day in Brentford.
