This question already has an answer here:

Pomodoro encourages you to put interruptions into other tasks (more or less) but, sometimes, these new tasks can be very short - literally 5 minutes of work. Or 10.

If I am using a 25-5 work-break cycle, how should I treat tasks which take less time than my work cycle takes?

Pomodoro should be applied where you really need time box. For petty tasks you don't need pomodoro. Just mark them in some GTD app and finish them.
