Love Tanka Addressed to Sally Suzuki

This just in: love tanka from anonymous married man who has apparently taken Sally as his mistress:

         鈴木サリーへ

きつぱりと切り離されて凡妻へ戻るつらさは何に例えむ

Is 凡妻 even a word?

And where's the 季語? Don't tanka poems have to have a 季語?

Mother said...

Not to mention the kireji.

I give this tanka a 3 on a scale of 7.

Mother said...

I never noticed this before, but is that a baby stuffed into the back of Sally Suzuki's kimono?

The line 「戻るつらさは」 sure is a mouthful.
