Gulp a bite of each
Her poetry and pot roast
It’s tonight’s special
Before you can lie
I tell you I know it was
when the necklace broke
When broke spoke hope nope
the dinner plate is shattered –
sweep up the pieces

There is tension in these! So much unsaid that it hurts!!
Haiku is perfect for capsulizing emotion, I think.
I like the way you capture a moment of tension in each of these haiku, that teetering moment that could lead the tension to explode into conflict or simmer down into irritation.
Sometimes it seems so much of life is small moments that grind you down. But maybe there is revitalization coming, you never do know. That is what I like about short poetry, it leaves the options open even if the current situation or scene is seemingly defined.
