Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


she held it in. but did not.

a real mind bender, she.


‘looking glass’


lost within normalcy

you turn to your looking glass to

appease the encapsulated weirdness without;

flow with everything that cannot define you.


rejoice in beauty found in folds

of darkness and lace.


most live life through a distorted lens

but not you.
