Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


her regrets overflow
more than her pours.

pleas for another round
drown out her own.

her pain as subtle
as the oak on my tongue.

merlot ruminations
stain the coasters.

she hopes i am blind
to the sediment in the glass.

    Each #barflypoet poem you post is making happier and happier that I don’t drink anymore. 🙂
