Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

‘egg whites, veggies on a whole wheat wrap’

 

i had an epiphany

the morning i ordered breakfast

in that old deli and grill

listening to the mumbled tune

high up upon the shelf

from that static crusted radio.

i realized i understood

everything that was sung

each word every chord

while not one person in my life

has deciphered my signal

quite clearly cried out at all.
