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.
