Tears in Tanka and Haiku

unnamed
Dry-eyed

Your love has left me
Visibly parched and cracked up
Like the legacy
That water leaves when drought strikes
A land that was unprepared.

Boiling emotions

Salted to your taste,
This condiment can surprise
Even master chefs.

Beware!

It is mislabelled:
Universal Solution
To Confrontation,
By misogynistic fools.
You’ll drown in these waterworks.
