@ close range

he could see the whites of the keepers eyes
@ close range
he could visualise the ol’ onion bag bulging
@ close range
he could see the strings enmeshed
could tell which way the chord twisted
could see the knots in the netting
the pattern of repetition
how the gut had been tightened
@ close range
he couldn’t afford to miss
