Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


all the poetry i share has been written months if not years before posting it.

i have thousands of poems. a lucky thing because i haven’t written anything new in months.

that’s going to change soon though and i’m excited to discover the direction my muse will travel.

until then, i hope you’re enjoying my many unflinching reveals of self as well those i’ve laid eyes upon.

i thought i might start indulging in some #tbt since i have enough material accumulated.


a new way to kill yourself


he’s there but he’s not

mind entwined in a silvery

brume that holds magic and

horror all at once


the horror, he realizes, is that

he cannot free himself

once and for all from this life.
