Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

It’s time for the ‘What Pains You Project.’ I listen privately to your pain and write an anonymous poem dedicated to you…

 

‘you get what you pay for’

 

piece by piece

he deconstructed himself

starting with the roof

the timber, the floor

until he chiseled away

at the very foundation

that kept him rooted

to the ground.

reflecting back she realizes

he would have failed

whether steel beamed or

brick mortared;

a shack never meant

for the storms.
