Japanese Senryu (Humour Short Forms) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

after the
shakespearian play
talking like its characters for days

quarrel over toy
angry mom
throws it into river

inside out -
the t-shirt
on her

winter
my feet too
go down in temperature

hainging a cezane copy
in room -
for sleeping's sake

fused in passion
doctors fighting
to loosen Borneo couple

eyeing prism
awed by
many awed eyes

summer economic recovery
tied up in office
wearing my sweater
