Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


you aren’t as clean as
you’d like us to believe
the hands you clasp
before you in prayer
snared in the cookie jar;

you always had a penchant for sweets.

keep praying
as i pray
for all us fools and dreamers
and the promise that tomorrow will bring
something new.
