Imperfect Haiku Poems (To raise awareness of domestic violence)

domestic violence

Gossamer

A cardboard woman
Braving a paper moon
Torn in lip

Breaking-in

Mandible and hymen
Once border control agents
Now crash test dummies

Moon-landing

She had the pout
Lips that broke like china
In to an impact crater

Fists

A perennial woman
In a geisha mask
Playing hide and seek

Battered

The wife finally becomes Juliet
On the scenic balcony
Of the Golden Gate

Murder

The never-ending story
Of a moth to a flame
Sister of Icarus

The ‘S’ Word

She thought it was surrender
He saw it as submission
It was only sadism
