Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


so i ask you: do you push or pull through?
 
‘he’s pushing through’
 
when one door closes
a new one will open
he fights to keep a foot
across the threshold
unmindful of crushed fingers
in the jam.
 
life has slammed shut on his face
far too many times for him to care.
