Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


and i am tired


i cannot stand your mouth

the way you form your words

the way your caustic attitude

reshapes my way of thinking;

thinking, or is it merely

piecing thoughts together


as a child might do?

i am so tired of existing

on jigsaw puzzle pieces

so tired of you scattering

the pawns on the board.
