after the argument
in the kitchen, gouging out
the potatoes' eyes

    potatoes from a box,
    passive agression
    seeks new target

    throw that slab of clay
    squeeze out air bubbles,
    and sculptor's artistic block

    i like this angry & funny senryu.it's interesting that it was more than one potato - which makes me think you argued with more than one person.anyway i enjoyed this very much; thanks.
