Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

‘honesty of the situation’

 

you laugh wildly

i never air my dirty laundry

 

even as you push the next guy

from your sheets

 

i’d never call you a whore

mind you

 

but your casual bed making

is a bit offsetting

 

to each their own

you declare sternly

 

as you steal from under my nose

 

i’d never call you a thief

mind you

 

but your casual sticky fingers

are a bit fucked up.
