Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


I‘ll take what’s left of you

And reassemble your pieces

No need for glue

No use for twine

For you’re perfect broken


Pieces long gone.

I’ll lay you across the table,

my jigsaw.

The sum of your parts

Telling a story

Filled with gaping holes

That make perfect sense

Only for me.
